Had a good meal here at an odd hour - 4 p.m. on Friday. Good margaritas, good enchiladas, solid service. Everything seemed very clean and for convenience you just can't beat it. Must be a local LEO favorite too, we watched some of Galveston's Finest go in for lunch the day after we were there.

This is your standard tex-mex food. The portions are large and flavorful, but not great. We had margaritas which were outstanding. We had a large table of six people. Service was quick and our server was excellent. Everyone cleaned their plates, so we can't complain about the food. I would come here again to try more dishes. It is good... More

We were craving a bit of tex-mex and we found it here. Endless chips and salsa to start - very addictive! Service was a bit slow considering the restaurant was only about 1/3 full and it was mid afternoon, but the atmosphere was great and the food was even better. Worth a stop while waiting for your cruise.

Good (overpriced) margaritas but..... the food is not good here. We had the combo appetizer platter and nothing had much flavor. The Taquitos were so bad we complained so they brought extra nachos that tasted like sawdust. The stuffed peppers look impressive at least.

Great place to eat. Food was really good, service was great and meals were around $11 each. Serving size was good, more then enough. Would go there again.
