“Back again several times this year.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

One dollar beers and margaritas with a variety of American style food like lasagna, gringo tacos, 9 layer salads and deep fried mac and cheese squares.

Don't worry, I don't eat all those dishes but I have friends who one by one do!

Best time to get here in our view is just after the lunch rush (about 1400) or around 4:30 if you plan to have dinner and a sunset.

On the second and third floor facing out over the malecon (sea wall) across from the statue of the aliens departing (or are they arriving?) via a 25 foot high ladder (you have to see the bronze sculpture).

Great view of sunsets - a breeze almost all the time. Some ladies would be looking a for a wrap just before sunset when the breeze is blowing in from the Pacific, but it is great during the heat of the day. As a Canadian guy, I am OK at any time with a T-shirt and shorts of course!!

Seriously, a nice place to stop for an informal snack. The added bonus is there are no TVs showing sports re-runs.

That's it.

“Better than expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Cheap drinks and decent eats....try the awesome gigantic onion rings...best in Mexico, maybe the planet. Great, friendly service. Wife and I both enjoy the place and will be back whenever in town. Bought a T-shirt. Ignore the review below...why did they eat there 3 times...hhhmm...maybe they like the smell/taste of bacon? I would tell anyone to go here..awesome deal for the price.....

“Lousy food & cheap drinks”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

The food is among the worst in Puerto Vallarta, but the drinks cost $1. We have eaten theer three times. Everything tastes like bacon. That's good if you ordered bacon.
