“Happy atmosphere and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

I recently went here with some friends and I was really surprised by it. The staff were friendly and efficient, the food was very filling and the drinks were lovely. Even though it was packed with families and young children, the atmosphere was positive rather than noisy and intrusive. This is a good place and I would definitely go again!

“Good food for a long dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

OTB, part of the Chilis, Fudruckers team in Saudi, is Mexican food at its best. I have to say that the food is very good, the price is very high though these days. It can take you some time to get your food served to tables, so best to be there during dinner so that you have time to wait for it. For business lunches, if you need to be back in office on time, then avoid it.
The chicken fajita, enchalida is great, and do remember to try the apple pice with ice cream it is worth the visit only for that :)

“Tasty food, service good, if a little slow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Large portions of tasty food - I had the Ultimate Fajita which was beef, chicken and prawns. Service was good, if a little slow. Would happily go there again.

“Lovely restaurant,good service and good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

I went here with my friend and we both really enjoyed our night. A vast menu with the food on offer being plentiful,well cooked and fresh.The chicken fajita my friend had was a little bland as the chicken was just flame grilled without being marinated but that was our only complaint. My chicken enchallida was gorgeous and the side dishes it came with of refried beans and rice was well cooked and tasty. We skipped the starters as they gave us a big bowl of tortillas with 2 dips and we washed it all down with a pitcher of fruit cocktail with the bill coming to 169SAR. Good value,good food with fantastic service...i will be returning.
