This would not be my choice of Mexican food in Duncan. Most people go there to drink. My visits have been far between times and every time I am disappointed with the food. I wouldn't take guest here.

Don't let the catchy name and festive exterior fool you. That's all it has going for it! We should've known something was up when we walked into the foyer and there was a ladder there. You literally had to walk around it to get into the dining area. The set up was okay although Tostito chips would've been better. We... More

A nice but rather plain place just north of Duncan. OK but not a strong recommendation. Located next to a motel on North US 81.

The dinning area was very clean. We were seated very quickly, the staff was very friendly. The chips were fresh, the cheese and salsa were very good and fresh. The frozen margaritas are very good. Our food was brought out very quickly. Everything was very good. We will visit here again.

There are only 2 restaurants in Duncan. Both continually full of customers. I don't know if the food was edible or not. Got tired of waiting and left. The water was ok. Never tried the chips.
