Foursquare Tips

  • Don't get stabbed
  • Cheap ass happy hour
  • Best Mexican restaurant in the Ellicott City/Columbia area. My husband (a mole sauce self-proclaimed connaisseur) highly recommends the chicken mole here!
  • More "Tex" than "Mex", but don't miss Gilberto's Specialties, which are all Baja inspired fresh seafood dishes and they do a great house margarita !
  • They have a solid selection of Jose Cuervo tequilas including the Family Reserve, and Don Julio 1942! Jeremiah Weed and Smirnoff flavors also great!
  • White girl Wednesday!!!
  • Wednesday nights is $2 nights including draft beer 22oz, Jack daniels , house wine, house sangrias and margaritas
  • Good enchiladas, decent Chile rellanos. Has mariachi music at night.
  • This is especially nice in the warmer months when the patio area is open and the kids can get fresh air and the noise they make isn't contained by walls.
  • White girl wed is no longer WTF!!!!!!!
  • Typical MarMex (Maryland-Mex). Nothing to write home about. Another place where if you don't know Authentic Mexican you'll love it
  • Free dessert thursdays
  • They have really soooo good food to eat there
  • Lunch specials are 11:30am-3pm starting at $8.25. Happy hour is Mon-Fri 4-7pm where you can get $1 off drinks and $5 appetizers. Check the website for special deals.
  • Would NOT recommend. Staff was rude, food is gross, drinks are boring and not even fresh. Being a tequila bar I was disappointed is see them using margarita mix. Definitely a fail.
  • Everything!
  • Good margaritas
  • The Agave Margaritas are not too shabby. :-)
  • Disappointed. We waited for 15 minutes. No one came to take our order so we left. =/
  • The salsa looked and tasted like it was from a can. Had the blancas enchiladas, nothing to rave about.
