Loved the 5 layer dip. Chips were nice, thick, and crispy. Salsa was warm (like temperature warm). Entree was fish taquitos (even though they look like tacos). The sauce was spicy. Very good. Said wait would be 20, we were sitting in 5.

We started with Queso Dip for the Nachos and then ordered Enchiladas (one plate with 1 cheese, 1 beef; one plate with both beef). The service and food was excellent. We would eat here again on a return trip to South Padre Island.

My husband and I visited this place last night for dinner and we were very disappointed with the food. The charro beans, Mexican taquitos, and tilapia entree tasted very bad! The chips and salsa were not so good. We ordered a medium queso and it...More

I know what you're thinking..the name is cheesy but let me tell you the food was good. So good we ate there twice. The shrimp cocktail was fresh and delicious and for my daughter who doesn't eat much, that queso was the bomb. The blackened...More

Was very pleased with the meal. Salsa was way to hot to eat though. Can't remember the name but I got a flautas I think. Had fajita steak, cilantro, cheese and avocado on a tortilla. Something I have never tried and it was very good....More

The salsa was a bit different, but after a few bites it turned out to be good. The food was good (both Mexican and seafood). Our server was great.
