We were a group of seven people and we all enjoyed the all-you-can-eat meal, which was very delicious but also a bit expensive (45.00 CHF). Everyone had something to drink and we thought if we order an extra liter of tap water for everyone that that would at least be free, because normally tap water is free in restaurants when... More

The food and service are amazing. It is a real treat, especially considering it is one of the only "alternative" options in the region. The food is well served and you will not go home hungry. The price is a bit above the average, but worth it.

The Tex-Mex was tasty, though different from what Americans would expect. Servers were friendly and the drinks were strong.

Tex-Mex is Switzerland. Somewhat random but surprisingly tasty. Somewhat pricy, as are all other places in this area. Overall good. We had the fajitas and margs and they were great.

Over the last couples of years we ate quite often here(we are locals). In the beginning everything was great, service, food, atmosphere... Even if it was a little more expensive than elsewhere, we enjoyed our visits very much. Unfortunately things have changed. The atmosphere still is cool, always a lot of people but the service leaves much to be desired.... More

The Tex-Mex restaurant Appalooza was a discovery that made Spiez feel to be a town that is looking forward to more than one group of people. The excellent menu at the Appalooza allowed both tex-mex and good Swiss cuisine. Definitely a restaurant to be sampled. If the weather is warm, try an outside table.

I was surprised how much I enjoyed their fajitas, but seriouslty it's really difficult to mess them up. The drinks were big and delicious, but pretty expensive. The group I was with took a one of the rooms and we had a great time. A lot of locals are there, it's pretty tight-knit. I would definately visit again!

Appalooza is a restaurant of it's own kind: It has a stylish interior relating to mexico. The mexican Tex-Mex menus are tasty and range quite high in terms of quality and presentation, but it's expensive. Surely a good place if you are looking for some special ambiente with good meals. The shots there are quite good too :)

Tex-mex style kitchen - try the fajitas. Food could be a little cheaper though...
