I was invited to this restaurant with my friend, the light was almost dimmed, music was loud too, and the place could have been much cleaner and way more Comfortable, they serve us some nachos cheese with chilly dip sauce "average taste at best", we ordered some tacos, and a meat jalapeño and melted cheese mix, food component was obviously precoocked thus didn't attributes to a great fresh taste, the experience wasn't all that great. Felt more like regular sandwich you could make at home. I might give it one more shot next time.

I already visited this restaurant four times, and every time I go there I find it better than the previous time visited. The food is amazing, always go with empty stomach in order to be able to finish the dish, and I bet you could. The portions are so generous, always taking leftovers home! The prices are not bad, reasonable.

It is perfect for kids, there is a place where they can safely play and have some great time.

Personally speaking, I wish "shisha" was available there (LOL), but this would deprive the restaurant from its Mexican identity.

The dim lights and the hole wooden setting is so romantic. I will keep going there in shaa Allah.

If you are fond of Mexican food then this is the right place for you. As you arrive you will feel a warm welcome from the staff who will greet you with a smile. The service is swift - it only took a couple of minutes before our order was served on the table. The food is delicious and the service excellent. My friend and I had a pleasant dining experience at the OTB.
