This is a big place with lots of tables. The food was average. The portions were large. The service was good. The beer was cold.

Very satisfying Friday night dinner in Winthrop. Casual but tasty. Friendly service and cheery atmosphere. Good price for the margarita. We just ordered enchiladas - spinach and chicken enchiladas - and enjoyed them.

Had a family lunch with my wife and two daughters who are 8 and 10. We tried to sit on the deck, which was overlooking the river, but the unwelcome bee visit forced us inside. I had the Carne Asada.

We were on a road trip looking for simple food that wasn't a hamburger. Ever though we were warned away from this place, we checked it out and decided to give it a chance. We were right. The service was fast, the beer cold and the food good. I wouldn't let anyone talk you out of this place. We were... More

We had dinner there and the food was average. The service was very good, and we were able to get in and out very quickly.

SO....... three of us bopped next door to Carlos 1800 and asked if they had room for us. We were seated within... More
