Shrimp tacos and margaritas very good. Service excellent, wish I could remember our server's name-pretty blonde from Dallas, TX.

Our group of six was promptly seated during a busy Monday lunch hour. We ordered fried cheese curds for an app- tasty! Enjoyed my fish tacos along with a cold beer. Nice selection of beers- would easily return to this spot.

Sitting alongside the Arkansas River, very scenic and good food. I loved the tacos!! Open air building; go a little later to miss the bright sun. Didn't take long to seat our group of 6.

Thought we would give it a try after reading the reviews. The The service was the worst of any place we went in town. The food was bland and did not appear fresh made. Don't bother, keep walking and go to the Rivers's Edge instead!!

I'm surprised and disappointed to read this -- we're known for our flavors and friendly service. This sounds like an off day, and I'm sorry you didn't catch us at our best. Hope you can give us another try, Becca, Manager

Great atmosphere, good food, good drinks, friendly and quick staff. Burrito was HUGE. Seriously, like a nerf football. I would eat here again when in Salida

Not sure for inside. We always like to get an inside table along the river. Give them a call as they may allow dogs on the patio outside.
