This is an ambitious menu for a small town. They have all of the typical offerings including enchiladas, burritos, fajitas, tacos etc., but what sets them apart from the usual 'formula' are their Signature dishes and their Yucatecan Cuisine. That's where we went. Portions are big and represent good value. The deck overlooking the river is the place to be... More

Very good Mexican food in this little western-themed town. Not spicy, but very well prepared and nicely presented. Ask for hot sauce to jazz it up. Nice selection of Margueritas, excellent to enjoy on the river front deck.

The service was not particularly great and the food was ok, but not fantastic. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to others.

Maybe it was the rain outside or the mid week atmosphere but the food was pretty tasteless, the salsa un-original and the chips were stale. The sangria helped to wash it all down but over all I was un impressed and felt that Winthrop has missed out on a great opportunity to provide it's visitors with an authentic food experience....

Our server was rude and 3 of our ordered items were wrong. The food took forever! Completely overpriced. I would have complained to the manager but I got the feeling that they wouldn't care. Worst experience I've had eating at a so-called "restaurant".
