    The city I live in San Antonio (2 hrs from the Mexican border) has no OTBs, the city I grew up in Indpls has 3 - perhaps OTB refers to the Canadian border - I wonder aloud and perhaps alone

    Good food, great service. Just had Jake as a server. He made our dinner better with his service and demeanor!

    The Flan desert was awesome! Like a caramel custard or something.

    Sizzling apple crisp is supreme!

    Haven't been here in months because it was subpar at best on our prior visits. Decided to try again... The salsa is much better but the chips are nasty. They aren't fresh and taste bland.

    The Dos XX fish tacos are crazy good!

    Don't eat here, don't waste your time, slow service, food cold, food tasted bad, totally bad experience!!

    Kyle is the worst server I've had in a while. Completely absent for most of the meal, screwed up our order, and his section partner had to bring us our food, appetizer, and refills.

    Cameron Funk · February 6, 2013
  • Samantha B.

    Try to avoid Kyle if possible. He seems to spend a lit of time avoiding his tables and having other servers taking care if them for him.

    Samantha Borley · February 6, 2013

    The southwest chicken taco are the best.

    Michael McDonald · November 10, 2012

    Monterey ranch chicken fajitas are the best!

    Shannon Tuvell Montgomery · October 13, 2012
  • Melissa B.

    Chips and salsa are awesome. Don't order the Guacamole Live. It sounds good, but the don't add any seasonings or garlic so it is tasteless.

    Oops meant that Chile relleno was best in Indiana

    Dale King · June 14, 2011
  • Dale K.

    Chile is the best I've had in Indiana. Tortilla soup on the other hand is inedible.
