Came for the post Glacier hike, found great chips and salsa, inexpensive cold beer, quick friendly staff, and the food was authentic and tasty. The burrito with cactus was awesome. Worth the trip from Kalispell for a future Mexican dinner.

Food was solid - large menu with lots of options. Servings are huge, so come hungry. Enjoyed a margarita with dinner - it was ok. Flan for dessert - excellent. Check this place out if you're in the area!
