This is a jewel in Blaine. It is a large restaurant with a separate bar area. The food is always good. And their menu of authentic Mexican and local TexMex is extensive. Even offering a limited north American menu like burgers and fish and chips. Lots of specials. Free pool all day. Occasional live music. Happy hour is 4-6 everyday... More

Out with friends. Servers are right there as soon as you walk in, bringing you fresh chips & salsa, Asking for your drink order. Food comes out fast and hot. Everything tasted great!!! Have been there before and will go again!! Nice atmosphere in the bar area as well.

I was referred to this place by a friend. We both like Mexican. My wife and I thought we would check it out one evening for dinner. It is attached to a bit of a sketchy looking bar. Probably not the best place to go if you have kids with you, just saying. This is not fast food by any... More

Good downtown location. Close to Motel International. Great service and bar specials. Pleasant bar and restaurant atmosphere. Food average. Sister had shredded beef taco salad and me vegetarian tamales. Would make another selection next time.

Second visit here, was more impressed the first time. Will not make an effort to return as we had this vacation. I guess that margarita was much better last year, enough that I wanted another, the food was good the margarita ok, last years was better.

As it was happy hour, after a long drive, we stopped at this restaurant, the bar area. First we searched down the server after a 20 minute wait. Both of us ordered steak burritos. The ratio of steak to rice was 80% rice 20% steak. Why call them steak burritos?

I wrote a review on this a few years back and we have been dining here whenever we get a chance. My wife and I usually get a sizzling chicken fajita and we split it....it's a huge order and more than enough for the 2 of us. To start, we order 2 frozen Margaritas and they give us a basket... More

Okay, I started off with a bias, I like Mexican food - a lot. This is just a good typical classic Mexican restaurant United States style. Got all the stuff, Mexican music playing in the background, lots of color. I had the chicken fajitas and found them to be excellent. Full disclosure: I love chicken fajitas anyway. The chicken was...

Stopped on a Friday afternoon for lunch. Shared the "Quad" appetizer with my wife. It was just right for the two of us. The homemade jalapeno poppers with cranberry sauce was the best. Very friendly staff.
