“Good spot for having cold beer & appetizers outside on wooden tables & deck.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

More of a tex-mex bar with food rather than a restaurant . Visit this place on a warm day or evening to sit outside and enjoy a few drinks.

“Great Tex/Mex and service”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

This is a no frills place with great food, and even greater service. The server made a mistake on our order; she apologized and made it right. Food is quite tasty. I had the brisket tacos, and my wife had a pollo dish that was huge and tasty. The drinks were good. Lots of TVs too. There is outdoor seating but it was way to cold for that the night we went.

“Very Good Tex-Mex Restaurant”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

This restaurant has not been open in our area for any great length of time. The day we dined there it was cold outside and unfortunately cold inside the restaurant. The restaurant has 6 garage doors that lead to outside dining tables and one of those doors was left open as the temperature plummeted. The staff at the restaurant is professional and very attentive. In fact some of the best wait service we have received in quite some time. Ordered the home made tamales which came with beans and rice and the meal was delicious. The salsa is mild and very good and the chips were hot although they were a little on the thick side. Another in the party ordered the Red River Enchiladas. They too were delicious. Tea is priced at a reasonable price of $1.85. High priced and weak tea is a pet peeve. We had a delightful meal. The menu on Sunday and weekend is from the dinner menu and some of the entrée prices are a little on the high side. The tamales were $9.95. We noticed a luncheon menu week days which appeared to be about a dollar less than dinner prices. Plenty of parking on the lot. Several TV screens in the restaurant.The check has a place at the bottom that shows the amount for each person if splitting the check. This is helpful for some people who have difficulty with their math.

“Great Service”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Was there with a larger group for business. I ordered a combo not on the menu (Steak and Shrimp fajitas), as well as a request for a modified garnish. In a larger group that can sometimes be asking for issues - not here. Order came out perfectly correct, and the steak was perfect. Staff was super friendly, super efficient, while not getting in the way at all. When some of us wanted more heat to the food they offered a couple of options, including grilling a few Serrano chilies. Little touches made it a great experience.
