Been to Mike's a couple times. The Hungry Hombre special is where its at. The margaritas are kind of expensive for their size, but I assume i'm kinda picky coming from San Diego. Worth a try.

Order a drink with your meal. The drinks are made with fresh fruit, are massive, and taste amazing. The food is brilliant, and the staff are helpful. Best place in Sasebo so far!

If you miss having Mexican or Tex-Mex, this is definitely a yummy option. Good food, slightly expensive (we're not in Southern California anymore...). Just bear in mind that the venue is tiny, so there's every chance seats won't be available on a busy night. Super friendly staff. One can only hope they will get the opportunity to expand their venue... More

You have to go here remembering you are still in Japan. The food was good. The price was not expensive. That is all you need.

Tex-Mex is right outside the Ginza in a relaxed part of town. Nice drinks, good staff, and an overall positive atmosphere

I wouldn't call Mike's "great Mexican," but as a Texan who lived in CA for a LONG time and was craving an enchilada, it was very welcome! I'd call it East Coast Mexican if I were trying to explain it to someone from the US. The guacamole was wonderful, but skip the salsa. It tasted of straight canned tomatoes. No... More

the food is well prepared and service is fast and friendly. Good Margarita's. i have ordered the enchiladas and burritos, both were good. I was disappointed in the chicken fajitas. the chicken fajitas were made with fried chicken patty. all in all a descent place to have Mexican food.

Oddly good texmex for Japan. Fantastic fresh fruit margaritas in many flavors! They prefer cash and will take US dollars at a fair exchange rate posted on the wall. I suggest the guacamole.

Polaroid photos of drunken sailors and Japanese/American mismatched couples plaster the walls. You notice the graffitied dollar bills tacked to the ceiling, You realize this is a popular American hang out. The food is great and the drinks Are greater. This place is good for a casual night out with the bros, or if you miss the Tex-Mex of good... More
