“Fantastic mixed drinks - mango margaritas, etc. at happy hour.”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Wonderful mixed drinks. Food isn't bad and is above average for Corpus Christi but that is a low bar. Friendly, great service and great happy hour prices on drinks and appetizers. Atmosphere at Friday happy hour is sending me elsewhere though. Too crowded, too loud. No view - Is located on the service road of a major highway. If you want a great mango margarita this is the place to go. Otherwise, there is not much here.

“Good restaurant”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Crowded but excellent food and service. Staff worked with us to get us seated as soon as possible. Did not have to wait long for our meal.

“Good Food for the Right Price”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

My family and I have eaten at the restaurant many many times and every time we or I have had a great experience. The service has always been great and food excellent. My wife and I love the cheese dip. You never run out of chips and salsa and the margaritas are awesom. I sometimes go there during there happy hour and margaritas are half off!!!

“Very slow, poor service and worse manager!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

A group of seven ladies went here at 1:50 pm on a Sunday. The church croud was leaving and we were one of less than 15 tables in the entire restaurant. We had to ask for chips and salsa, drink refills, and we never got the queso we ordered. At 3pm we still did not have our food! We asked for our checks when the food arrived. We fi.wished eating and some of the table did not have their change yet. The manager came to the table and we asked why it was so slow. He said he didnt know, but would check. No apology, no concern and then he rolled his eyes as he walked away! The food was good when we got it, though not all the food was hot, it wasn't cold either. Shame on this On The Border. I have eaten at probably 8 different member of this franchise and it is almost always great.. not so this day!
