“A fun afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

It was a cold afternoon, and we loved sitting by the fireplace. The tortilla soup and salad lunch combo was excellent, and we appreciated the happy hour drink prices all day on Sunday. The poblano enchilada, rice, and beans were good but nothing spectacular. Serive by Brent was absolutely excellent! It was a great Sunday afternoon visit, and we'll be back.

“THE place for Mexican food in Gig Harbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

What a change! The old Moctezumas restaurant, across the street, was fine. But, the new one is superb! The decor is stunning, the food seems to be even better and the service is great. It has become a real hit, with the parking lot full every day/evening, spilling over into surrounding areas. Happy Hour is fun and busy.

“Worst bartender ever, by far”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

Visited on a Saturday evening, sat at the bar and before we even had a chance to order the female bartender was confrontational. She slammed down a corona in front of my friend, which we did not order, turned and walked away. She then returned to ask "what do you guys want" in the most rude way she could, didn't know we were inconveniencing her by visiting a half full bar. She then told my friend that if he didn't drink the corona she slammed in front of him she would throw it out, which was fine, we never ordered that. She then asked for our IDs, after providing a drink, we all offered our licenses to her, she looked them over and slammed them down on the bar, at this point we had an issue. I asked her what her problem was and why she was being so negative, she was shocked at my assessment and told me she was the nicest girl in the world, another server came by to tell me how busy they had been that day and that was the cause of her sour demeanor, only about half full at this time. After one drink we left, I would not recommend this place to anyone, service of this level is inexcusable and unacceptable

Would definitely recommend this restaurant in Gig Harbor. The atmosphere is good, and the food was very good with very large portions. The service was excellent.

“Run for the border here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

Very good food and great service. Came Friday around 1:30 and sat at the bar. Greeted with a smile and chips and salsa. Dos Equis on tap is always good, I went with the Torta. It came with sweet potato fries. All was very good, better was the jalapeño ranch sauce. (just ask for it).
Very cool remodel! From the entry to the bathrooms and bar. Well done!

I'll be back when I can get into some of the tequila! Great selection by the way!
