    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.

    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!

    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.
