“Decent texmex”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Although not the best texmex in Budapest, it's still worth to come here for the allround experience. Slightly overpriced in my opinion but decent food and nice ambience. Worth trying if you are really bent on getting texmex.

“awfull, tried 4 different meals .. really not worthy !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

first ... Chorizo appetizer is not chorizo and also zero hot like they mention, second chili is really bad and not serve with ANYTHING, only a bowl with chili... third beef tacos are CRAZY BAD, they say its tenderloin steak tacos.. well I wouldnt give that chewy hard meat to my dog.. fourth, quesadillas are far from being real one, really chewy... Fajitas are served the good ways ! On a hot pan ! But zero taste fajitas.. service zero ...... Finally dont loose your money as its quite pricey for a meal like that..

“Average Mexican food only more pricey!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Depends where are you from, If you are from USA or you are familiar with Mexican food don't go there, it is not as good but 3 times more expensive.
The food is fine but for Budapest since there is no other Mexican food here. you might like to go there only for Margarita!

“Best Mexican in Budapest by far”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

I have tried so many Mexican restaurant in Hungary but all of them were disappointment. This is the only place where the quality is satisfying. The ambience is good, waiters are friendly and the meals are huge and delicious. Will return regularly.

“Cheap, cheerful and great quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I must admit to really loving tex mex, so this review may be a little biaised; however, of all the restaurants we visited on our visit, this was the food and experience I liked the most. Waiters were friendly and exceptionally helpful - no issues with wine availability that we hade previously experienced. Atmosphere was lively and we were surrounded by young revellers from many different nationalities. The final bill was very very reasonable and I knew that I had experienced a good quality meal and had enjoyed some great local wine.
