    Good service! Nice little gym in the dark cave of an airport.

    Joshua Chaney · February 22
  • Isabela S.

    Best restaurant in the airport

  • Krystal H.

    1/2 hostesses was nice, the other incredibly rude. Server was great, guac wasn't worth the $5.50. Can't really call it a Mexican place; they sell french fries.

  • Christopher M.

    The chips and salsa at the bar are FREE!

    Really decent and authentic for being at the airport. Great view. Get the empanadas appetizer...great!

    Run before you order. This place blows

    Fast, courteous service and cold beers.

    Hugo Finol · April 23, 2014

    Even with a $15 margarita, chips and salsa were $6. At least they were salty though because the rim of my glass had maybe 3 licks worth. Painfully slow service. Ruby Tuesday in Terminal B is better

    Tyler M · April 20, 2014

    Don't go if you're in a hurry...takes about 45 minutes to get food.

    Marty McCabe · April 9, 2014

    Get the Milagro Agave Rita margarita. One of the best I've had. Anywhere.

    Larry Hawes · April 3, 2014

    Service is pretty terrible here. Slow, even at the bar

    Melissa · March 6, 2014
  • Robyn

    Not very attentive service. When neither the tables nor bar have been bussed and you aren't acknowledged in the first 5 min of sitting at the bar there's a problem.

    Robyn · February 24, 2014
  • Frances L.

    the enchiladas were delicious ! reasonably priced. service was really slow.

    Frances Lamanna · February 9, 2014
  • Toni P.

    Super great service. Food was quick to get out and tasted divine.

    Toni Patton · February 9, 2014
  • Matthew N.

    I expected Pace salsa, I was pleasantly surprised with both taste and heat. My server (Andrew) was a rock star server.

    Grande size the OTB House Margarita on the rocks. :-)

    Matthew Nelson · January 31, 2014
  • Grant H.

    Bad by most standards. This salad is mostly cheese.

    Grant Halsey · December 22, 2013
  • Kelly E.

    Loved it. Drove from Tampa just to eat here, and found out that the place was inside the terminal. BUT, the manager Jeff Contrucci came out and took our order and brought us our food. AWESOME PLACE!!

    Kelly Ellis · December 21, 2013

    House margarita is 10 bucks! Expensive and tastes like Chili's $6 house. Must be the airport. But, they do ask you about your flight times. That's a considerate gesture!

    Eboni · November 29, 2013
  • Hunter O.

    This is the slowest airport restaurant I've been to.

    Hunter Olson · November 21, 2013
  • Mohammad A.

    Queso chicken is goOd

    Mohammad A. · November 8, 2013
  • Trace J.

    The service sucks today. No interest in refilling my ice tea glass....

    Trace Jennings · October 6, 2013
  • Eric O.

    Just remember...you're probably about to get onto a plane. So don't overdo it on the Mexican food.

    Eric O · August 5, 2013
  • Alec S.

    Huge helpings, but bland food. Where's the zip in the tacos?

    Alec Saunders · July 19, 2013
  • Brian D.

    Veggies BEWARE! The cheese enchiladas come with beef chili. NO warning. Awful!

    Brian Duncan · June 30, 2013
  • Billy D.

    Not bad for airport Mexican!

    Billy DuBois · June 13, 2013
  • Kayla K.

    There's plastic silverware because of airport regulations - not by the restaurants choice so calm those horses.

    Kayla Kelly · May 19, 2013

    Try the perfect patrone...it's perrrfect 😸

    Ms.QueensKitty · May 18, 2013
  • Bob S.

    Plastic knives, forks, etc. Boo.

    Bob Sullivan · May 8, 2013
  • Neal R.

    The food sucks almost as bad as the service.

    Neal Rapoport · March 16, 2013
  • Julia G.

    Only two tables here with access to power outlets. One is straight back from the server stand. The other is to the far right wall. Ask the servers to be seated nearby; maybe the occupant is friendly

    Julia G · March 15, 2013
  • Chirl G.

    The martinis cost $15!! And that's with the house vodka!

    Chirl Girl · March 15, 2013
  • Wing Y.

    The steak nachos are really good!

    Wing Yu · March 9, 2013
  • Cindy H.

    Queso is the best.

    Cindy Hill · March 2, 2013
  • Cristty O.

    Fish tacos are the best

    Cristty Ortiz · February 24, 2013
  • Amy M.

    Good frozen strawberry margaritas!

    Amy Mixa · February 11, 2013
  • Kelsey M.

    Great service, delicious fajitas (got chicken and steak for no additional charge with the Baha veggies. Yum!). Would stop here again if I'm back in Orlando!

    Kelsey Martin · January 24, 2013
  • Juan Andrés

    Beef Classic Burrito, the best option.

    Juan Andrés · January 13, 2013
  • Marie C.

    To-Go alcoholic beverages! it's wonderful for delayed flights

    Marie Crouch · December 22, 2012
  • K F.

    You can order vegan fajitas here.

    K F · November 26, 2012
  • Carrie H.

    Cesar salad (with steak rather than chicken) is delicious! Very satisfying before a long flight.

    Carrie Helbert · November 12, 2012
  • Blanca

    Breakfast burrito to wake up, place not crowded and good service

    Blanca · October 27, 2012
  • Jeanne F.

    JC is an excellent waiter. Salsa is spicy and good. Chili con queso is not cheese at all but still really tasty. Kim Crawford Sav blanc in 9oz is the best and you can take your wine in a to-go cup!

    Jeanne Fields · October 23, 2012
  • Thomas W.

    Food is delicious but caution, service is super slow at a table. If you have less than an hour until boarding try the bar.

    Thomas Wood · October 4, 2012
  • Breanna W.

    Delicious chips & salsa!

    Breanna Whiteley · September 30, 2012
  • BW

    I would eat anywhere else in the airport before I would eat here again. This includes food I found in the restroom. Bad food and service.

    BW · September 30, 2012

    They do not carry the NFL football package this year. Boooo!!! Catch your game back at Fox Sports Bar.

    Angela Sinni · September 16, 2012

    Skip the guac. It's not real
