  • This Cajun/ Mexican restaurant has great food and atmosphere. Among the many dishes, dont be afraid to try the Catfish New Orleans! But get there early or be ready to wait.
  • Best Chips!
  • For no discernible reason they have the best diet Coke on earth: you think "how can that really be true" but you'll see
  • Try the French Quarter Chicken. In my opinion, it is the best menu item. The creamy lemon pepper sauce really does me in.
  • Blackened chicken fajita= delicious
  • "I do not enjoy getting free and unlimited chips and salsa" -Nobody
  • Try the catfish tacos. Add some black beans and fresh avocado and a little hot sauce. Yum yum
  • Their margaritas are ridiculously huge, cheap, and really good. Best combo ever.
  • Mmm... Fresh, hot, salty, limey chips... And buckets of soda/water. Buckets.
  • The drinks are better than the food, not bad for a group. Try fajitas if you plan to eat.
  • The food is awesome, servers are helpful and portions are huge!!
  • If you're a vegetarian make sure to ask for white rice with your meal, the brown rice is made with chicken broth.
  • Go to Borders and get the blackened Catfish
  • The empanadas are amazing!
  • don't make the typical mistake. Go for the Cajun instead of the Mex. The Catish New Orleans is the best thing on the menu.
  • Cheap, festive, bottomless chips. What more does a girl need? Oh right. A margarita. They have those too!!!
  • What's up with the new tortillas? Used to be thin, smooth and "flexible". Now they're like dry pancakes that crack when you try to wrap them. Totally ruins the whole eating/tasting experience! :(
  • Filet Mignon Jim Bowie Style. Do it.
  • Hornitos on the rocks rox!
  • Get the burros ! Sooooooooo good
