$4.50 margaritas during happy hour were great! Chips and salsa were delicious. If you like Fajitas they were great, huge portion that could easily feed two people, but pricey for just one person ($20.99 for chicken).

Decent price for the touristy area. Big proportions that taste really good. You get free chips with 2 different salsas. It has a small lunch special that has 6 different items for 9.99 each. It also has nice atmosphere and scenery. Definitely a good spot...More

Tequilos was a miss. Had hoped for some traditional, 'Real' Mexican cuisine. The plastic sheet menus should have been a dead give away to go elsewhere but we were hungry. The Caliente' Salsa was anything but hot. Even adding copious amounts of Chalupa sauce did...More

This place was a joke. Waiters were stoned or living in the Twilight Zone. I thought I was on candid camera. No one greeted me or seated us so we stood around and finally seated ourselves. No chips. " we ran out" they said. No...More

This restaurant is on the corner with seating outside which is casual and comfortable. The inside is well decorated and casual also. The waitstaff was good. The veggie fajitas were average. Hot sauce, chips and queso were average.More
