The meat was tough and not tasty at all. The orange margarita looked totally different than the picture. To top it all they only accept cash. Come on folks get in the 21st century!

Service was good, fairly priced...but had a bad experience with a local guy. We just wanted to enjoy our drink...not have a stranger sit at our table and bother us.

It's truly a kitchen nightmare. Bad service, worse food. Don't eat here. A real disappointment for the family outing.

Do NOT ever eat here. It was so awful. From the service to the frozen salsa with no taste. Did I mention the cheese dip likely came out of a hat that has been expired for 5 years? Service was pathetic. Galena, this one is...bad!!More

Not worth it!!! Stay away!!! Service=F Margaritas=C Food=Incomplete. Waited 40 minutes for Nachos and then told our food would be up in another 30-minutes. I would rate this place a 0 if I could.

Yes Jalapeno margaritas - so tasty. The salsa was flavorful, mild with the addition of fresh corn for some sweetness. We also both had a quesadilla (tilapia and vegetarian) very filling and fresh with a serving of rice under the quesadilla so you could enjoy...the flavors together. Friendly service. Cash only - but they have an ATM on site. Large open space so you can feel safe for social distancing. Would definitely recommend - and we are pretty fussy about our Mexican restaurants...More

After spending a weekend in town, I’m convinced there are no good restaurants in Galena. This didn’t even qualify as mediocre. It was the worst “Mexican” food I have ever eaten. Drinks weren’t even right as the margaritas were incredibly watered down. We ordered Beef...tacos and beef taco salad, but they tasted nothing like beef. We’re not even sure what animal they were. Culver’s would be a better option.More

Beer was cold but the nachos were terrible.! They were basically Sams club chips with a big can of their cheese sauce smeared on them. Staff was friendly!
