We had a pleasant lunch there today. I had the fish tacos and my wife had a combo platter. The food was really good. She likes the coconut rice enough she ordered it as a side dish I wish they had a bigger selection of draft beer. The manager and the waiter took good care of us. This was our... More

Meal was not good, started with silverware being dirty (wait staff promptly replaced) and receiving the bottom of the bag chips- small pieces. I don't know which bag but there were two different types of chip shrapnel in the bowl. The ice tea was warm enough to melt the ice in our glasses so we ended up with less-than-cold iced... More

Considering the amount of fresh preparation we do around here, what it really comes down to is execution -- each and every time. I'm sorry we let you down. We're always happy to fix any issues you may have, though, so I hope if you ever give us another shot, we can show you a much better experience. Best, Jeff... More

Food is ok. Was with a large party and after waitress said she would honor our coupons, the Manager/Owner can by and stated we couldn't use both - and then continued to argue and say how he's losing money. We explained we weren't going to argue, but were obviously ordering dinners and drinks, and have visited in the past, so... More

I want to apologize if I came across wrong in the moment, but I'm glad you touched base -- there were some miscommunications on my team about our coupon process, but generally we can't honor more than one coupon at a time. It wouldn't be my intention to argue, and I hope you'll make your way back sometime. I know... More

We received chips & salsa when we sat down. The queso was very good, too. Dinner was very flavorful and filling. Unfortunately, the most notable thing was the number of tables that seemed to be the 'catch-all' for all the dirty dishes. There didn't seem to be any employees cleaning tables. The servers certainly didn't do that at all. Because... More

I'm a little baffled seeing this, but it sounds like we may have been shorthanded on bussers when you came by. If our servers were tied up, things may have backed up, and I'm so sorry we dropped the ball. Since the food was tasty, I hope you'll give us another shot! Best, Jeff Kratcha, Owner More

Ate here April 26 and when we arrived about noon the restaurant was almost empty. Seated promptly and spent time reviewing a very interesting menu with lots of great sounding dishes.

We'd never intend to overcharge, so I appreciate you following up to let us know there was an error. That said, it sounds like there may have been a system error we were working through, and I'm going to double check on that for you -- I'd hate not to be able to welcome you back and really wow you...

We decided to give Tequila Joes another try since we were given a certificate for a free entree because of the service fiasco when we tried them out a couple months ago.
