I was there with 2 co-workers on a Wednesday evening. There were people dancing, great ambiance, very friendly staff. I had a frozen margarita and chicken fajita's, they were great. So the next time I am in Houston I will eat here again!

The Nachos with cheese are awesome. They taste so good. You are able to Order without certain ingredients (eg. Jalapenjos) Guacomole is nice as well. Big portions. Enough for two girls :) Fair prices.

This spot happened to be between where we were working and the hotel we were staying in. The beer was cold, if not of the standard enjoyed in Germany. The nachos and ceviche were very tasty, and the bar staff friendly and competent. Not the best, but far from the worst. It satisfied a need.
