It was raining the evening we had dinner at this restaurant. We sat outside on the patio. It was very nice. Good view to people watch & since it's located across from Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, we got listen to the live band playing. Our waiter was very friendly & professional. The food was good the beer was cold.

This was just an average experience. Service was OK, not great. Fairly priced. Good atmosphere though with a good location. Good place to meet with friends to kick back.

Warm salsa? As in, they make (or at least heat) the chips and salsa they serve at the table!! Nice touch. We also got the queso and chips appetizer (hotels will have a coupon) and it was delicious, the chips were def freshly fried. My tamales were excellent. Nice spot on the new section of the riverwalk. Great experience.

My family and I had a late dinner here on Saturday. We were sat immediately in a georgous multi story restaurant, with an amazing view of the river walk. We were given the customary chips and salsa and might I say it's some of the best salsa I've had in quite some time. I ordered the fajita and flautas. The... More

This was very good Tex Mex food. Our waitress was the best one we had all week (compared to other restaurants we went to). I had seafood tostadas--yummy!!!

I sat outside. It was very hot but my waiter kept bringing me ice. Very kind and attentive. Food was good too. Not a fan of the pigeons but I did enjoy the people watching. I would eat here again.

As an Arizonan, I am used to pretty good Mexican food. Maria Mia did not disappoint! I had Nachos, they were good and my friend had the Big Chico and it was also good and maybe even better! The Salsa is definitely hot and the margaritas are delish! All in all a good meal for a fair price.

We went because the website said there was a lunch menu. We got there and the waiter said there wasn't one. The food was OK. Nothing great. The drinks weren't very good either. The only good thing is that it is surrounded by a bunch of worse restaurants so it makes it better than it actually is.
