Went to the restroom while i waited for my food, nasty guy with tattoos did NOT wash his hands after he urinated. Was vulgar and rude, I did not even go back to my table since he was an employee.

So this is your second less than fantastic review of my local establishment here in Winter Park.... and this review site indicates you are a local. As a local, we would love for you to speak with us about your concerns personally. First our green chile gave you 'the runny poo' and now you have come back despite this report.... More

I had the chicken sandwich and it was fantastic! The margaritas were good too. My husband had the Ditch burger and that was good too. Service was great.

An amazing bar, excellent margaritas, awesome burgers, and a staff that embodies the winter park spirit. Friendly folks that love living where they do, i've closed this place down many a night. quick and efficient service without any frills. DJ is awesome and will talk to anyone, makes you feel at home, and will remember your name when you come... More

The food was decent and filling but the margaritas are what they are known for and they were strong! Atmosphere was great and we met some great locals.

I watched one of the NFL playoff games here and had a blast. The atmosphere is upbeat and family friendly. There are screens all over, but they are not intrusive, in case you are trying to communicate. I arrived during Happy Hour. The food took quite awhile because the restaurant was full. There is " carry over seating" if the... More

This restaurant has great, authentic New Mexico style food. The red chile was especially delicious. We did have a long wait (on a Friday night) but it was worth it and the staff was friendly. It's a bit loud in the front room and quieter in the back room. The green chile philly cheesesteak was also delicious, although a bit... More

We visited last week. The food, prices and atmosphere were great. Beware most green chili sauces are very spicy. I had the nachos and they were awesome except the extra salt added.

Fun, greasy spoon spoon restaurant. Good beer menu that's relatively affordable for the area. Happy hour from 3-6 M-F with $2.50 domestics and $3.50 double tall wells. Ordered the ditch burger and it was decent. If you're looking for a fun bar atmosphere this is your place!
