Burgers, Burgers and more burgers and a whole lot more! This place offers real atmosphere of a Mexican grill somewhere in the South West with the ease of a short drive from the Wilmington or Newark Areas. Commonly referred to as "EATS" by many, as...More

I give "Eat" one of my rare five star excellent ratings - which I do not rate too often given my realistic standards. Great decor with a Mexican/SW flair that I find appealing. The drinks come in huge plastic cups - at least 24 oz...More

This is hands down the loudest restaurant ever. Food is ok. Seriously you can’t hear each other talk. It’s crowded with tables placed very close together.

We come here almost every weekend. It’s low cost, good food, with good service and an awesome bar. It is loud so if you’re looking for intimacy or romance you won’t find it here. But you will find a banging sangria.

Sometimes, it’s best not to patronize chain restaurants. Corporate policy was responsible for terrible treatment. I would never suggest this for a large party. Also, the fajita for two was a big rip-off...not double a single for sure

Good food reasonable prices. Often crowded so you may need to wait for a table. Best time is mid afternoon if that works for you

They don't do reservations. This place is too busy all the time. Unless you talk to a manager and go before or after a select time.

The kids menu is great and they are good variety. All the kids meals come with a candy dessert and I don't think any are more than $5. Most times my boys have left overs for next day lunch.
