If you want to grab a bite and watch a game then this will be fine, there are a lot of much better food options for the price though in any direction. There's a good, loud party vibe here.

Stopped for NFL football and a bit to eat. They had some transmission difficulties for our game - not the restaurant's fault. We all had burgers - meat texture was odd, but could be attributable to the region. Great selection of food and beers - great service and a fun place to watch the game.

We stopped here for lunch and Nachos and Quesadillas, both were gorgeous, and loads of it. Came with salsa, guacamole and sour cream. So tasty PLUS our first Heineken in 2 weeks since arriving on holiday!! Great atmosphere with music, great service even though it was packed. Highly recommend, not good on the waistline!!

Great place to watch NFL or any sporting event. All the games were showing. I could not get any games in my hotel. Food was great. Had burger and beer. Service was a little slow because of the number of customers but all was good

Tequila barrel as a separate enclosed air-conditioned betting area where they play all the games on many large televisions as well as horse racing. We watch the World Series on a large projection screen as well as the hockey and basketball games on the other screens. If you like to gamble there is also betting windows for the local horse...

We visited for a couple of beers and to share some nachos, the service was ok, even though it wasn't really busy. Beers arrived without the offer of a glass...followed by the food....without the offer of side plates! Beer was ok, Mexican as we requested, and the nachos were average. There was a lot of them and lots of topping,... More
