“Gotta try their Mexican Gumbo!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

This was an overnight stop on our way home from the Big Easy. Because we had overindulged over the last four days, we didn't need a whole lot, but a bowl of soup sounded good to hold us over until breakfast. We stumbled on this place and lucked out! We enjoyed a bowl of Mexican Gumbo and Chicken Tortilla soup, and boy, did we enjoy them. Quite unlike what we experienced at a couple of different places in New Orleans, the Gumbo here was loaded with meat, beef, chicken, and shrimp, not over-loaded with rice as the others. The Chicken Tortilla was equally good and thoroughly satisfying. No need to go on with more food, as the portions were generous.

Oh, did I forget to mention the Margaritas? Don't forget to try them when you go. They're also generous with the Tequila, so no need to order three of them!

“Average Mexican”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Salsa and chips were on our table before we settled in. The beer was cold, the beans and rice were like every other Mexican place, and the service was nothing special. My wife had an open face burger with cheese and Mexican sauce smothering it and it was way too hot to eat. She scraped the sauce off and still broke a sweat on her forehead.
