service sucked, food was blah

Took almost 2 hours to get our food. When it finally came, parts of it was cold. Sat for 30 minutes without water or chips. Food definately wasn't worth the wait or the expensive costs. Will definately NOTeat there ever again

We have come up to Winthrop for a few years and we stopped for dinner here the first night in town. We waited almost 2 hours from when we sat down to when we actually got our food. The owner was rude and said "sorry, this not Seattle" when we complained about the long wait. We are not even from... More

The service was just OK but our waiter was very friendly. The food was decent; I was disappointed but my son enjoyed his meal. My food was not quite warm enough.

We enjoyed our dinner here on a quiet Friday night. Good (huge) marguerita and great dinner! The pollo asado was good and the smothered burrito was great too.

We were not very impressed with the quality of the food we ordered and the service was slim to none. It was off season so, one would think it would be a little better. Not many choices this time of the year so, we settled for this place. Check out the other places in town first!

A small chain restaurant that has some nice things on the menu like pepita and mole sauces. Good and friendly service. Nice variety of margaritas and beers.

First off the service was good. No complaint there. As far as the food. My husband had enchiladas and i had a burrito. everything was tasteless. Mexician should have flavor and spice. The salsa was even bland. We had a margarita and that wasn't even good. Will not go back.

Winthrop restaurants come and go. Their quality is up and down. Just now, Carlos 1800 is noticeably better than long time Duck Brand. The fajitas are especially good. And they serve Mac and Jack.
