We stopped because of their sign advertising drink specials. We ordered nachos to share and were surprised at how delicious they were. The biggest surprise was the bill. This place is a great value. Food and drinks are very good. Very authentic.

It was plain out horrible when we went there. The food was disgusting they never gave us what we asked for it was pathetic. They were playing poker in the next room while we were paying good money for our food.

We eat here every time we go to Branson. The food is always good and the $2.99 margarita is worth every penny. The service has always been great as well. No complaints on this place.

It looks and feels like a locally owned restaurant, but I don't know for sure. It has a similar menu and style as other family owned restaurants across the southwest we have visited.
