I had a delicious taco salad. Rice, beans and corn on lettuce in a fried taco shell. Topped it with Ranch dressing. It was perfect. My husband thought the decor was great. I thought it a bit pricey but I would go back again. Good to have another option in SL. The gal at the counter was very pleasant.

“Easy and good”
Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

Good food and some of the best wings in town. Always quick and usually friendly. And it's opened late!!! Take out is done in under 10 minutes. And they have fried pickles and fried cheesecake!

“Quick and tasty burritos”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

A friend and I went into Dew Drop's Grille and Pizzeria on a busy Thursday night after the arts festival. It looked good with brick oven pizza and beer specials. We were given a choice of sitting inside or out on the deck and chose the latter which overlooked the river. It was a nice atmosphere! Our server took our orders, brought us our beers then went on to ignore us. The inside table sat vacant for a while then some people were seated there. There orders were taken maybe 15 mins after ours. While folks finished their food out on the deck nobody else was seated outside as it was starting to get chilly. We eventually were the only ones out there. Meanwhile, the folks who were seated indoors had received their meal while we sat out in the cold. When they were presented their bill and we still hadn't even received our food we went inside, handed the waitress $10 for our happy hour beers and told her we were leaving. She was rude and said that the other people had ALSO been seated outside BEFORE we had been and had asked to be moved indoors. That still doesn't explain why we saw them order after us, receive their food, eat their food and pay their bill all before we even received our food. This was the worst service I have ever received.

So we were starving at this point and stumbled upon Borracho Taco. There was a board with lots of options for tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc. I ordered a pork burrito and a tasty local beer. We were seated and eating within five minutes. It didn't have the atmosphere of the other place but was a fun place with reasonably priced Mexican food.

“Fast service, great food”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

We gave up on left bank, service was so bad. So we came here. Server was pleasant and fast. Food was tasty and portions were fair size. Will definitely come back.

We tried Borracho about 3 times and the first was good, but the following 2 take out dinners were a bit soggy. I do wish them success though!
