“Some of the best tex-mex you can get”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

I Like the salsa and queso very well here it's has the right amount of heat and very flavorful. The ultimate fajita is always good but heck everything I have ever ate here at the OTB chain restaurants around the states has been delicious. I would suggest getting on their email list for specials like free appetizers or other things.

“Great Food and fun waiter”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Waiter made us fresh tortillas and was a fun guy. Quick service. Walking distance to major hotel chains. Missed Tex-Mex since living in FL, this was a treat.

“The worst service we've ever experienced.”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We went in this afternoon around 3pm for a late lunch, and although we were seated immediately, and there were several empty tables in the restaurant, we sat unnoticed for ten minutes. We were passed by at least three servers, none of whom took our drink order, or even acknowledged our presence. We ultimately gave up and left. I asked to speak to the manager on our way out and explained to her that we were leaving because we sat in her 2/3 empty restaurant for ten minutes and never so much as got an "I'll be right with you" from a server, and all she said was "Aww, I'm sorry." Well, me too. But I'm sure the restaurant that got our business was not.
