Foursquare Tips

  • One of the best margaritas in town
  • Go. As a Texan I can vouch this place is the most legit Mexican food in the area. Get the Lucky Horseshoe margarita and special fajitas.
  • Love this place!
  • Very slow service unfortunately. I would likely avoid unless you want to wait an hour to get a drink
  • Yowza, the swirl is quite punchy, as someone said. Loved it and it came in a reasonable size (8-10oz)
  • Best Mexican food in the area. Guacamole is super fresh and delish! Can't get enough of this place.
  • The Guacamole and Chorizo Queso along with the Margaritas are divine! My favorite place to spend a sunny afternoon.
  • The Baja Gold sounds funky but it's delicious. Try it with Negro Modelo
  • Frijoles makes you rip ass...great food though
  • Shrimp and Lobster soup on Fridays, and Fish Tacos, are always great. We often come here for goodbye lunches and other office occasions, because of their ample and flexible seating.
  • Try the Lucky Horseshoe. Awesome margarita!
  • It seems pricey until you realize that a fajita platter for one easily feeds two and that's coming from a guy with a healthy appetite. You can also ask for extra tortillas at no additional cost!
  • Chicken fajitas were horrible! They were supposed to be their speciality as well. Way overpriced; I would recommend going someplace else.
  • The shrimp and beef fajitas are to die for!
  • Fresh made tortillas are great!
  • Food & service, meh.
  • Try the "Jalisco" if you like fajitas...grilled shrimp is really good!!
  • The swirl margarita is a punch in the face. Get the strawberry margarita if you want something a lil less intense.
  • Go to Uncle Julio's and get the Swirl frozen margarita! After finishing your meal, ask to take home extra salsa - they'll give it to you for free!
  • Brunch on weekends is a best-kept secret.
