Foursquare Tips

  • Slowest service ever. Not one to bitch but damn.
  • Best carnitas down town!
  • You need to get the Texas size nachos. Your concept of nachos will never be the same.
  • It's just OK. I miss the Mexican spices.
  • Try the chili! It's spicy hot and yet delicious!
  • Happy hour 4-6 and after 10 but only food is on happy hour.
  • Hmmmmmm - bacon-wrapped, goat cheese-wrapped jalapenos
  • They need to use a different oil/cooking-spray: some dishes I've had here (the Texas-sized nachos & the habanero enchiladas) tasted like melting plastic smells.
  • I had a delicious pomegranate margarita! The food was tasty, service was good. No complaints here!
  • Try Chamucos Tequila. Drinks like a fine wine!
  • Habanero prawn sauce all over the TEXAS Nachos is super yummy
  • Texas sized nachos FTW
  • Try the michelada, or as we like to call it, the Mitchellada. It's not on the menu but the bartender will know what to do.
  • Their Enchiladas are delicious !! Must try
  • The places service has tanked over the last year or so. Crappy attitudes all the way around.
  • Margaritas and Happy Hour dishes
  • Costly and no Bueno. If you want a Margarita this place is OK. If you just want a shot of of tequila skip this joint.
  • Definitely try the fresh guacamole dip. It's the best! All of their appetizers were really good. Nice atmosphere! I will definitely go there again!
  • I miss the fried bananas, they were awesome!
  • Service was amazing. It was super busy on a Saturday night and our waitress stopped at our table every 5 minutes to check on us. Food was delicious as well. I will without a doubt come back.
