“Ok Tex Mex”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

One of your only choices for Tex-Mex in Ft. Davis

The good:
-The food was Ok
-Salsa was very good.
-The green chili burger was good

The Bad:
-SLOW service...I mean snail pace
-Greasy fries

I hear the Chile Rellenos are good and I'd like to get some of the hot sauce to go

“very poor Mexican food dirty”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We came here last year and were dissapointed then but thought it was because we didn't order Mexican food. So we thought we would give it another try. Ordered the Buffet and were really upset this time. No other way to say it but badly prepared food, greasy, badly seasoned. I am from South Texas and I know Mexican food, this is not it.
Place was also very dirty, no air inside and the patio is full of flies. Wasted 20.00. If you go don't get the buffet.

We come here whenever we can. Food tastes great and the service is awesome. We especially love the hot sauce and queso.

“Slow night - we were the out-of-towners...”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We stopped here on our way out of town based on the recommendation of a local guy. The food was ok - not the greatest that we've ever had, but I think it depends on what you order. We had just basic fare: nachos, tacos, burrito, etc., and some of the locals' orders looked a lot better.

It's definitely a local place with it's local quirks. If that's something you're willing to try, it's a good place to go. If you're looking for a chain or more "gourmet" experience, this wouldn't be for you.
