    Start with the Black Bean Queso, some chips and a few drinks. I rarely make it past that, it's so good. Don't think of it as "filling up on chips", think of it as a light appetizer dinner.

    Place stays open till late in the night and the food is pretty good. Definitely a place to hang out if you are in Redmond.

    Shrimp habenero and shrimp fajita are awesome. They serve equally good nachos. One of the best hangout places is Redmond, impossible to get a spot on Friday evenings and they do not take reservations.

    There's a good vibe about the place and super nice and friendly staff. I had their range of tacos which were okay. Nothing special.

    I didn't realize there were so many types of tequila. We went on a Tuesday and they had a half-off top shelf special. Can't wait to go back and try more!

    Manager and servers passionate and knowledgable of all items on the menu and what works for certain allergy restrictions. Can't go and NOT get the massive nachos and pomegranate margarita!

    The Hacienda Pie was the *best* thing on the menu, but unfortunately they've stopped selling it!

    Of all the dishes, we like the ancho chili wings the most. Also, very good tacos and enchiladas - haven't had a bad dish yet.

    Came in for a late night to-go order, and the wait staff was super helpful! The restaurant was still pretty busy, but I was able to order, pay, and get my food pretty quickly - no problem!

    Don't expect the manager to be anything less than a douche, because that's what he is ...

    happy hour(10p-1a) nachos are amazing

    Carter G · March 13, 2014
  • Annie R.

    Don't be surprised if they make you a margarita that tastes like salt was dumped in it. Yuck! It's happened twice on separate occasions.

    Had their Matador burger and it was amazing! Also had a look at their happy hour menu and was pleased with the selection and price. Will definitely go back for that.

    Order the Tex-Mex Spring Rolls and the Chicken Enchiladas. Use the sauces and slaw from the rolls on the quesadillas. You're welcome!

    Incredible music, impeccable decor, fresh food. Skip the too-sweet cocktails and grab a beer from the tap. Great dejection.

  • Mkm D.

    You must try nachos, (really big order) with a "El chingon shot". If you are still hungry go for the tacos al pastor which are pretty decent
