We needed a break from the German fare and this place was perfect. Vegan and beef/chicken dishes were served hot and delicious. And their margaritas...yeah, had to have 2. After eating they had a dice game for everyone in the party. Roll a double and get a free drink, discount, etc.

The food was OK, the service too. Nicely decorated restaurant - although has got nothing to do with Santa Fe (New Mexico).

As the name said "Tex-Mex", the menu is a combination of Mexican and Texan food. We had a mix plate of tortillas which was good, and a mix grill "little cowboy" which had chicken wings, park steak, sausage and great ribs, came with coleslaw, potato wedges and fried potatoes. All dishes are served with very good sauces. Friendly service, great... More

Some people will give this restaurant a bad rating because they don't think the food is "authentic." That's not my complaint about this restaurant. I can forgive a restaurant for straying from what the cuisine tastes like in its original locale. Who cares if the meal is delicious? But bad food is just bad food, and that's what I had... More

Worst meal of our stay in Dresden. Ordered the most expensive steak but considering the quality we were either served the lowest quality or the cheaper steaks should never be ordered. Service was indifferent and slow. Certain sauces for my wife arrived ten minutes after the food was presented. And although the suggestion is that this is a cheap restaurant... More

The staff was friendly enough, but the disappointment started when the chips delivered to our table were painfully stale, and probably out of a bag. The dips were pretty good, the guacamole was especially smooth, but those chips were tooth breakers. We found out after waiting for an hour that they hadn't even started our entrees because they were waiting... More

Having eaten TexMex all over the US I am very hesitant to try it in Germany as I have been disappointed most of the time. Not this time. Simply amazing . We tried 3 tapas which could have been a meal in itself and then went for the Grill Platter Argentina. Simply awesome. Wish this place would be in Munich... More

Very friendly & efficient staff serving tasty food in pleasant surroundings. Good choice on offer at reasonable prices and the dishes well presented. We found good enough to visit twice trying different meals each time.

Viva la Mexico. The restaurant caters for a very varied clientele. Cacti, sombreros and colourful murals form part of the décor. The menu offers an enormous range of dishes. Once you have decided what you are going to eat, you will find that the service is fast. The waiting staff are young and friendly. Dishes include classics such as tortilla chips, enchiladas and burritos. For the big boys there is a lot of meat to choose from and a great selection of steak. Why not order a tequila to send you on your way? Or perhaps you fancy something sweet? In that case why not sit out under the white sunshades and enjoy a creamy cocktail? There is also a selection of wine.
