My extended family and I were staying in Galveston the last weekend in March and we ate at this establishment on Saturday night, the 28th. They were very busy. We had 13 in our party but were seated fairly quickly considering. Nothing was quick after that. It took 40 minutes just to order. Another 30 to receive our food. It's... More

Ordered chicken fajitas for two, the waiter in this place had a real bad attitude dropped the food on the table and took off before we could even ask a question. He did not return to re-fill drinks and we did not see him again until it was time to leave then he expected a large tip for his lousy... More

A work associate and I ate here this week. The service was good but for lunch time and no crowd I was a little concerned. Typical Mexican fair. The salsa can heated. Didn’t like that. Had the fajitas and they were overcooked. Not likely to visit again.

Don't order the Ultimate Steak Fajitas for two! The steak was chewy and difficult to swallow. We were very disappointed with our meal. Service was adequate. We would not return and do not recommend this restaurant.

My husband & I love Mexican food - we had last night was a far cry from it! Our entrees were covered with some kind of a cheese sauce which made impossible to enjoy what we had ordered. There is no way we would go back there. Our waitress was great & our drinks were good - just the food... More

Laid back Mexican restaurant right on the sea wall. I had the fajita burrito and found it to be delicious and filling. Our waiter was very friendly and the service was exceptionally fast. The chile con queso appetizer was very good.

It has been a year since our last visit. We were seated at a nice booth. Our server was friendly but he did not hear our drink order & had to return twice, when arrived the drinks were good. Two of our orders on a table of four arrived wrong and were cheese enchilada's not chicken as ordered. Still very... More
