Can't go wrong with picking up some Borracho on a night out! Their queso sauce is great, and the ADK Chimichanga is always reliably good!

I love borracho taco and I am happy with the service and quality. This is one of the few places in SL that is affordable and dependable.

Service was poor, prices were high, and food was dry. I had gotten a cheese quesadilla- It was a tortilla and cheese. 4 thin slices with just cheese came to over $8 and they don't have any sauces or even salsa to dip with? They had messed up my fiance's order and guy behind counter was very rude about us... More

First time here and totally loved it. Great flavor choices for wings and they were just perfect. They knew how to do hot wings! Crunch wrap was great too. Price was reasonable. Portion was good. Service was quick. Definitely a winner!

Make no mistake: this is NOT Authentic TexMex. What it IS: excellent Mexican styled food. The Wings are truly the best in town, the pulled pork crunch wrap is Delicious! Heat seekers will not be disappointed. Reasonable prices for the area.

Maybe best chicken wings on the planet! So so great. Thai chili is my fave. Many other flavors. Hot is hot.

On vacation and passing through town with a lunchtime appetite that couldn't wait to be satisfied. Walked in with no recommendation or expectation and this place served the purpose well. Service was quick and food was tasty. What more can you ask for?

Was told this was decent Mexican. I live in the southwest. This was a poor imitation and maybe a step above Taco Bell. Would not go back.
