Overpriced tourist trap and mostly always empty, save for a few groups and an occasional tour bus. Their shrimp cocktail was horrible, and mostly onions, cilantro, and sauce. The shrimp were substandard and freezer burnt. I ate at the bar, and once my bill exceeded...More

We stopped here while we were staying overnight in Barstow. Nice atmosphere with plenty of seating and very Mexican decor. Our food came quickly and very tasty. I will come here again.

We loved it here--the service was awesome and the owner came by and was super friendly! I highly recommend their margaritas and the carnitas--and the hand made flour tortilla chips and amazing salsa made everything even more amazing! I would definitely recommend

It's been a couple of years since I've been here. I ordered their wings yesterday and I have to say they're some of the best wings I've had in Barstow. Their peach melon margarita was also delicious.

Their chips are the best-selling light & crunchy! I really enjoy their carne asada salad. This time I got shredded chicken. Excellent. They have a great garlic ranch dressing too. Always great service.
