Sat at the bar for 4-5 minutes well the only bartender sat on his phone texting away. I seemed like a nuisance more than a customer so I decided to stand up and put my coat on. The whole time the bartender ignored me and went about his texting business. I left with out a word said or objection, I... More

Serving tacos without salsa says it all, doesn't it! I have never in my life been served such tasteless food in my whole life. Steer clear of this place. My kids normally loves all variuants of tex-mex and mexican food - they all left it hardly taking more than a few bites to taste it.

The interior of the restaurant was more of a bar than a restaurant. Food was more tex-mex than real mexican and fast food like. Still quite ok.

This became our late night stop on our way back to the apartment. They have a great selection of spirits and of course tequila. They also serve beer. The bar staff are really friendly. There is a nice feel to the place with little alcoves, nooks and crannies. There is also an outdoor area. Prices are very good. This may... More

Not only nowhere near real mexican nor tex-mex, but really tasted bad. Service was OK, but hands-down the worst meal we had in Latvia.

We found this spot by accident while looking for other Riga sites, and discovered a hidden jewel. Being from Texas, we know good margaritas, and Tequila Boom has them--especially during their "happy hours". For expats in Europe, the hot peach pie with ice cream is also a treat. We'll be going back to try the actual food, but based on... More
