Nice relaxing environment, outdoor seating and very good happy hour. You need to ASK for the happy hour menu but it's pretty decent and you can get a $5 burger, $3 beer and $5 drinks. Great spot to unwind after a long day!More

Typical Mexican lugar with two separate areas--bar on one side grub on the next. Large and well decorated..... Lots of daily entertainment nightly .... A Middletown classic.
