I really like this place. I am in love with the steak chimichangas. And the margaritas are super yummy, especially during happy hour lol. The kids like this place as well. You get a ton of food, and for a family of four we usually spend around 50 bucks with a tip to feed all of us. We also all... More

Did this place recently have a change of ownership? We went last night - sat outside and we're shocked at how unkept and dirty the outdoor area was. The grass at a swing area was past knee high and there was wrapers and garbage all over. We saw more than one rodent scurrying around (iM NOT kidding!) even the table... More

Although I am tempted to keep this restaurant as the best kept secret in the city, I felt that I should give them some well-deserved positive praise. SOTB quickly became one of our favorite Mexican food destinations a number of years ago, and this has remained the same, despite many new establishments coming along. They have expanded into the adjacent... More

My husband and I visited on a Sunday evening and found Margaritas to be half price. We make ours from scratch at home and had to agree a Mexican Restaurant should do the same. We had a Jose Cuervo mix on tap. Way too sweet!! And not that good either. However, we ate at the bar and received good service... More

Stopped in to get a quick lunch. Sat at the hostess stand for 5 minutes without seeing any employees. None, no one at the bar, the hostess stand or from the kitchen. Finally gave up and left and went somewhere else.

North of the border would honestly be a better name for this taco shop. The food is more Tex-Mex than Mexican. I have had several well prepared moderately seasoned par for the corse meals there, including the carnitas, burritos of a couple varieties, and a quesadilla. I really wanted this spot to be great because it has a lot of... More

Ordered a chicken chimichanga and got a beef one. Waiter didn't really seem to care. I sent it back and received a correct one after my friend was done eating their food. Our waiter brought us a double side of guacamole which we didn't order, we assumed it was for the inconvenience. We were charged $2 for it. I also... More

What a joke of a place!!! Their service was a joke and no one apologized. I wasn't impressed with the quality of their food either. My meal was partially cold. I could go into details about the poor service and quality of food, but this is one of those places that's not worth the effort. Simply put, EAT SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!... More
