The food was terrible...it seemed to come out of a can. Maybe because we were there off-season. The only thing palatable was the beer. We had fish tacos; the fish was over-cooked, and no flavor at all. Our server, Octavian,though, was very friendly and nice...More

Decent prices and the outdoor tables give you a view of the river and the damn. We had the chicken fajitas for two. Food was good and there was plenty. Margaritas were generously sized and tasted good.

Went here for my birthday and had a great meal, had the mexican fiesta plate and all 3 items were great. Pitcher of margaritas, and free deep fried ice cream for my b-day. Wife and friends meals were also great. Thanks for a great birthday.

Parking is a little tight, might need to walk. Good steak fajita! The taco salad was heavy on the meat. Staff members were all friendly. Nice outside seating. Nothing extraordinary about the place. RRR
