Stop in for a cold beer and a Margarita. Bartender was very nice. The Margarita was good. Beer was very cold and served with a very cold glass.

One of my favorite places to eat in Hot Springs. The food is good and so is the service. Spinach enchiladas are amazing and so is the cheese queso. Also the Margaritas are the best around.

Food is great and prices are even better. The steak tacos are really good. My mom had the chimichanga and loved it. Great atmosphere and easy to get to.

We brought our kids here for dinner on a Friday night. The waiter was great and the service was quick! Food was unique and delicious. The Razorback special was amazing!

Like other reviewers the margaritas on the rocks are delicious and pack a punch. The food was good. Order the extra hot salsa if you dare (we loved it).
