“Good athmosphere”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

A good tex-mex food, but the greatest thing there is the athmosphere. Service is good, place is great and food is a good tex-mex.

“Nice Tex-mex”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

In general the food is good, for two people I would recommend Fajitas (sometimes is too big portion for 2 people). They have Brahma Black, a dark sweet brazilian draft beer - you should give it a try. The ambience is a litte bit dark, but I like it, as well as the classical rock and blues music.

“Most traditional in town”
Reviewed October 2, 2011

If you are looking for a good mexican restaurant in Sao Paulo, this is definately the place. The ambient is a bit dark, but the food is great. Try the draft beer, really nice.

“Pricey for what it is”
Reviewed January 23, 2011

I don't what it is, but this place is always packed, and has been for years, so they're doing something right.

This place reminds me of mediocre, chain-style tex-mex restaurants I ate at as a kid (remember ChiChi's?). If you go into it knowing it's neither Mexican, nor even authentic Tex-Mex, then you'll be OK (not impressed, just OK). The menu's not that big, and avoid anything that has "cheddar", as that means it comes with a big squirt of processed cheeze-wiz. Last time I was there I saw (what they called) a Philly Cheesesteak on the menu--I shudder to think what they've done to that.

Watch out for the ninja-like waiters who are pros at racing through the dining room, avoiding eye contact and cries from hungry customers, desperate to order.

If you're on vacation in Sao Paulo, there's plenty of other great food to eat in this city. If you live here and actually like good Tex-Mex food, well, you're better off trying to make it at home.
