“Good value and good sports bar!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

My husband & I went for appetizers and happy hour, it was great food, great margaritas and great prices for happy hour! They also have satellite TVs for watching sports, nice little area with a couch and large screen TV or hang out at the bar. Very conenient location right off the freeway, lots of parking.

“Mediocre Mexican and the Service Was Bad”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

My advice is simple: don't go here.

"Service" is something the staff should look up in a dictionary and ask for an explanantion because they have no idea of what the word means. Here it's a kind of random wandering around of staff with no communication sort of hitting and missing on water, chips and salsa, followup to requests, and food delivery. Took 20 minutes to get some water and then 2 separate deliveries in one minute. Waiter was nice but definitely got the sense he knew he was in with a "3 Amigos" kind of movie set.

Oh, and the parmesan cheese on the barely warm refried beans was a garish and unappreciated bit of whimsy.

There are too many far better choices for Mexican to be made anywhere in Marin to waste time and money on this "turquia."

“Delightful Deviation”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Airy, colorful, friendly atmosphere with smiling staff - seems always to have a 'good energy' feeling. Husband and I commuting to SF daily stopped one day, very spontaneously. Food came quickly and was done to absolute satisfaction. Fast, professional service.

“Great Food”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

We had a wide range of food in the group and all was happy. I had the fish on garlic best in along time. Their was a carnival in the town square so things were very busy but service, food and prices were all great.
