I walked past this place a few times, mostly because it was the weekend and there were tipsy college kids spilling out of the bar and slouching around the high tables. I decided to take a chance for lunch on Monday though and am so glad I did. The service is prompt and helpful and they have those fantastic hand cooked tortilla chips that taste better than anything! I ordered a trio of dips, and they were ok but served in plastic bowls. Continuing with the trashy Tex-Mex theme, I also ordered Mexican mac and cheese which was wonderful - super spicy jalapeno sauce topped with more jalapenos, tomatoes and avocado. The menu has the usual, standard non-authentic Mexican food in generous portions you find in lots of places in the USA - nothing exciting, but fresh ingredients simply prepared. The food is obviously here to fill you up as you guzzle the enormous 32oz margaritas. There are lots of Mexican places in Santa Monica and I tried to sample all of them - this wasn't the best, but it was pretty good. I'm going to give an extra star just for the awesome tortilla chips!
