    Piña Colada Bread pudding is a great dessert and a must have!

    The Great Balls of Fire are awesome. Tread with caution. The spice level will heighten all your senses!

    they're not afraid of spices...the food is just okay and kind of sloppily put together. it definitely could be better. sangria is good, service is awesome.

    "You can always add spice, but you can't take it away". Words of wisdom from our waitress.

    You've been warned! Balls of fire is not for the light hearted.

    Have the Great Balls of Fire at the end of the meal, as you won't be able to taste anything afterwards.

    Food poisoning from here. We shared a plate a couple plates of food and we were both hurting after. :-(

    Horrible wait time with a bunch of empty tables that were dirty. Food was good though.

    Yeah, the fish tacos are as good as I've read

    The cheesey poofs are really good, especially if you're not a die-hard pepper head.

    The fireballs are no joke! The fish tacos are also awesome. There are 2 habensros in each fireball PLUS the sauce!!

    Not so delicious to me. However, balls of fire are extremely hot!!

    Huge variety of foods from around the world (used to be pirate food, but this time I noticed Korean food?). I've yet to try anything that wasn't delicious.

    I completed the balls of fire challenge a few years ago, must say it was challenging but worth it. Hot as hell

    The best catfish sandwich around!

    You need to try the awesome Balls of Fire!

    Try the Ajiaco - Spicy and full-bodied - just the way I like my women ;-) The desserts are nothing to write home about so do yourself a favor and indulge in everything else.

    If you need to start off your meal with a good heart stopper, you can't go wrong with "The Memphis Blues Smothered Fries". Garlic fries smothered in cheese, sour cream, and soft bbq pork.

    Try the veal!

    Justin Koeppen · October 2, 2011
  • Lion S.

    If you're going to do the challenge do it as quick as possible. Don't let the habanero linger. But if you need milk, it's not free. They will charge you. I found that out the hard way.

    The tamale isnt that amazing for how much they boast about it although they have good black beans and kahlua pork and the pina colada bread puddings great!

    Samantha Kingston · January 2, 2011

    Order The Great Balls of Fire (5 habanero cheese fritters), put out the fire with some milk.

    Waltz in off the street, plop down at the bar and order the "Great Balls of Fire." don't order any drinks yet, an bite in to those fieryballs... Keep chewing & finish your ball whilst fighting tears

    Tip for management: if you give fb and twitter fans free lunch, your 4square fans certainly deserve love too.

    Yucatan Chicken Tostada. Will always be a favorite - pickled onions, hot sauces and a great staff.

    Don't go for drinks other than happy hour. It will burn a hole in your pocket quick. They do have PBR for $2.75 if I remember correctly.
