“Worst meal in Key West - ever.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

First, they were out of several brands of tequilla. Really, this is a western bar with mexican food... They were also out of guacamole. The service was slow, and the servers really did not seem to have a clue nor did they care. The food was awful. Bland mexican. Just a huge dissapointment. With all of the fantastic choices in Key West, I am surprised this place is still open. Don't waste your time.

“Good food. Surprisingly.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Looks like it is closed when you see it from the Duvall entrance. Kind of run down and dumpy. But, the food was surprisingly good. Good service, too. This place is fine for a meal and a few beers when you aren't really in the mood to make much of an effort to search for a restaurant.

“Average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

To be honest, this place is kind of a dump. Run down furniture, and sports blaring on every tv. The food was decent...not great, but not bad, either. We ate here pretty late at night, maybe the atmosphere is better during the day? If we're in the mood for mediocre "Mexican" food, we'll eat here again.
