My wife and I had chips and salsa and then shared their Gringo Tacos and thought they were very tasty. We are from Texas and asked our waitress a lot of questions and she was very polite and took the time to visit with us....More

Had lunch here. The view of the river was amazing. The wings were good. The jalepena poppers moderately hot,but tasty. The buffalo chili was also good. The margaritas had just a bit too much lime, but plenty of alcohol.

Food is good, but not great. Try to get there off-peak so you can get a table on the water. Quite fun.

Visited the bar. They were very busy and only had one bartender. He definitely didn't have great people skills. Perhaps I was just too thirsty and was irritated by the time I sat at the bar for 10 mins before I could order my beer.

Not sure for inside. We always like to get an inside table along the river. Give them a call as they may allow dogs on the patio outside.
