The food was quite expensive considering it was soggy and overcooked. The quesedilla was disgusting and the peppers were so overcooked that it wasn't worth eating - didn't even finish half of it. was not worth $18 plus an additional $4 for chicken.

I enjoyed how each meal came with beans, corn salad and rice.

The Baja tacos were quite tasty but also not worth $18 for 3 of them.

The bulldogs were very tasty.

Service was very slow and our table rarely got stopped at.

Went in for a snack since we were on Whyte, waited a little bit for a table. Once we were seated and placed our drink order and the drinks came, we were then informed that food service was behind by 40-55 min. We feel that why were we told this after a drink order was placed. We ordered the large nachos with chicken. When it came out it was barely enough to feed two people not alone saying it would fill up to 5. It was a very bland tasting plate of nachos and chicken . This is not a do over and don’t understand why they are rated so good by so many people.

Excellent shared lunch, amazing staff, great atmosphere on Whyte Avenue. Fun place with lots of people watching to go along with the meal. Meal sizes are substantial and three of us didn't manage to finish two shared dishes.
