Went for lunch at 11:30 and it took almost two hours. We sat in the bar area and the service was so slow. Food was very good. Had the beans with chips and the guacamole for appetizers. For lunch we had beef enchiladas which come...More

It's a place where you can get really; really; really cheap foods. Nothing here is over $10 and is served on paper plates. It may upset your stomach as It did for me (aka, don't eat the beans) but the food is still good. Service...More

Inexpensive food. Limited menu. Tasty. Pitchers of margaritas (2 sizes). AND....NO ice in the pitchers! That's right, they don't waste valuable pitcher space with ice! A definite place to visit.

Forget gourmet Mexican, get back to the best Mexican food in the city. Chicken mole terrific, burritos excellent and so on. No frozen margaritas and you have to pay for chips and salsa!! Worth every penny and you will love the paper plates!

Conejito's Place offers plates of pretty cheap Mexican food. It was average at best. It's actually a better bar than it is a restaurant. Very close to the Iron Horse hotel - which has much better food!

Great local atmosphere. Nothing over $5. Limited menu. Chips and guacamole at $3.85 were about a dozen chips (not that great and on a paper plate) and decent guac. Cheese enchiladas (3) with beans and rice were $4.75 on a paper plate, and VERY good....More
