The food is really bad. They added refried beans in the taco salad which made the lettuce wilt. The chicken strips had an odd flavor....there was no dressing for the salad. They added rice on the side which would have tasted better if served hot. The tacos were poor.

Wonderful customer service, very friendly. Under new ownership and opened this month! Great impromptu lunch, a very fresh homemade meal. We enjoyed the Chicken Taco Salad (gluten-free) and Grilled Chicken Sandwich. No liquor license yet, but pending.

Place is empty and for lease, no notes saying if they had moved to a different location. There was an old sign saying what there hours used to be.

Sidewinders offers a fast & fresh take on Mexican. It's a basic menu that can be combined in numerous options - tacos, burritos, tostadas, quesadillas and bowls. They also have a small selection of creative salads. My favorite is the panko-breaded fish tacos. Many local folks take advantage of Taco Tuesdays and Wednesdays when tacos are offered at a discount.

We had dinner here before an event and service was quick and convenient. Order at the counter and they bring the food to you. There is a black cherry marinated beef that is used in a variety of dishes. My wife had the tacos, my father-in-law the burrito and we also had the wrap. The main ingredient was the same,... More

This place has an awesome menu of Chile lime chicken, Cherry beef, Barbacoa, and fish that go into bowls (for those who do not like tortillas, enchiladas, burrito's, Boccadillos , and salads. The Beer selection is the best in that area.
