    I remember when this place used to be a Mexican restaurant... Now they have cheeseburgers and pizza on the menu. Mashed potatoes is one of the options for "sides." Also,they have the worst salsa evers

    The best salsa i have ever had. Every month i come in and look at the chips and salsa and wonder why i liked them so much. As soon as i'm in my swcond or third bite, there is a party in my mouth.

    If you enjoy actual mexican food, beware. Atmosphere is fun, kitchen serves late (after 11pm). Guacamole will be served as split avocado with a potato masher. You have to "make" it yourself.

    Try the mint margarita. Just don't have more than three--they've got a bit of a kick to 'em. Or better yet, have more than three, and then have the best night of your life.

    They have a great standard menu, but an even better exotic selection. Form grub stuffed poblano's to rattlesnake and rabbit, you are sure to find a unique item to eat here.

    Their "funky" music makes me want to run far away but they have great outdoor seating and are right next to the hippodrome downtown. The salsa also tastes like ketchup...

    Forego the lime and cilantro dressing...the Orange and rosemary dressing is also very tasty.
