    I'd come here more often if they had an actual lunch menu with smaller portions and better prices. No one likes garlicky, half-eaten Tex-Mex taking up room in the fridge

    Tex-Mex menu, including soups and salads, burgers and barbecue, tacos, fajitas, enchiladas, seafood, steak and chicken. Invigorating sauces meet fresh ingredients. Texas-style nachos are a must. Read more

    I go here for their late night menu - tasty, cheap, good for sharing! The service can kinda be 'meh' by the end of the night.

    The Happy Hour $1.50 tacos are good. Skip the Nachos Grande. Bland and doesnt come with beef. That's $3.00 extra. Thats not Happy Hour.
