“Great tasty ribs”

Restaurant details

We paid a visit along with another couple. We have been once before and it has a extensive varied menu, especially if you like Tex-Mex food.

Service is friendly and efficient ( Amanda from Coatbridge) although it did take a bit of time for the order to arrive. I think that was because the ribs I ordered took up the cooking time, which is fair enough.

I had the ribs, which are always excellent and our friends had steaks, which I am told were just ok, nothing special.

Overall, not to bad, for pub type food although I think some items are a bit overpriced (steak).

I will go back for the BBQ ribs, but think I will give the steak a miss.

NICE, NICE, VERY GOOD!The food was excellent. I have never been very enthusiastic about the grill chops, but this was the truth in the mouth sulavaa.Annokset were large, even-sized. The wine was good. service excellent, the waiter and the customer may have a common homeland brought further bonus of catering and service friendliness. There could be a better recommended. I hope to one day dine in question. restaurant. I recommend wholeheartedly!

Visited this place whilst on a two week trip to Spain with my kids and my parents.

My parents had been before and said it was really nice and it was! The staff are friendly, the food is great, portions are huge and price is comparitively low!

This place isn't a posh eatery and is more of a bar that serves food but don't be put off as the fare is fantastic. The first night we went my dad and my eldest shared the ribs and this is an entire rack that comes with fries and veg like peppers and onions. I had a chicked burger which was literally the best I have ever had and my mum had 'Pig Good' which was an assortment of pork, again served with fries and the peppers and onions. My youngest had a chicken wrap and this was an ideal size for him and comes as is. We all had desserts on the first night and this is probably their weakest area, but still nice. On the second visit we shared some starters, the chicken nachos were huge! I only wish I had taken a photo, tasted amazing too. The kids ate off the kids menu for the second visit but be warned these dishes are just as generous and I would say are definitely for older kids, or even adults without massive appetites. I had a cajun po'boy, not like ones I've have before or seen before but very good, full of flavour. My mum ordered the chilli thinking it wouldn't be very big but it was huge and very nicely presented.

I have no hesitations in recommending this place, they were friendly and welcoming, it was a relaxed atmosphere and the food was good and plentiful. None of us left feeling like our bellies or our wallets were empty!

great place for abit of fun, great selection on the menu from chills, nachos, quesdillas in the mexican corner to burgers, steak and chicken wings for the american flair. if you are looking after your weight the salads are great and all portions of food are huge, maybe tooooo big but that makes great value for money. girls working behind the bar have always been great fun and friendly with great advise for the area. the locals all seem to be british which is great if u are trying to find out great things to do from other tourists. great welcome, lovely fun bit of decorum and easily enough place to park outside if needs be. is more of the expensive restaurant compared to spanish tapas bar, but a proper meal

Good selection of Mexican style food, which makes a nice break after days of Tapas. One of the more expensive places to eat in the area but very generous portions.
A nice atmosphere, well partitioned place. Theres a Bar area, dinning area and what looks look a more private overflow dinning area. Also spotted a little 'chillout' den with tvs and games consoles.

Only complaint is that there was some highly inappropriate TV on while we were eating, Embarrasing bodies or such - which was verging on the pornographic.
