I usually go for the cheap tacos. The price has gone up from $0.75 to $0.89, but it’s still way cheaper than anywhere else. The tacos never agree with us afterwards, but it doesn’t do any real damage. When you order something else, that is...More

We've been going here for many years...love the nachos, beer selection, occasional dinners, and Talley, the manager! Check the big chalkboard for beer offerings and specials.

I came here with my boyfriend for Cinco De Mayo. I had heard some great things about it and although it was somewhat hidden, I found it to be charming inside. The menu appeared to be different than most Mexican style restaurants and looked promising,...More

A quirky, casual place off the beaten track in the Chelsea area of Norfolk. Not quite Tex-Mex but Mexican with twist. An extensive menu with lots of variations for each dish. Specials are listed on a large chalkboard along with the day's selection of beers....More
