“Fajitas and frozen margaritas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Popped in here on the off-chance on a visit to Tauranga. The place was very busy but they still managed to find a table for us.

Service was great and the food was awesome. All complemented by some great frozen margaritas! You should definitely pay this place a visit when in Tauranga!

You sure can't go past a frozen Margarita in this weather! Thanks for the feedback.

“Great Family Eating Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Our favourite place to eat! Great food, huge portions and the best margaritas in Tauranga. Drawings and crayons for the children.
The super-cheap kids deal on Sunday nights makes it affordable too!
Not to be missed.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

This is easily the best Mexican food we've come across, including in southern California - it leaves Auckland's Mexican restaurants for dead. There are superb flavours, generous portions and great ambience. The "Mexican hot" option went down well with our fire-breathers, and the "a bit of everything" plate was just great - its fish taco contents were amazing: an incredibly fresh fillet, perfectly done. All this was set off by $20 pitchers of fruit margaritas the night we were there, making it a new must-do for our annual trips to the Bay.
