Although arriving late was treated to one of the finest meals I have had in a long while. Friendly service with outstanding food. All freshly prepared. Carne Asada was outstanding, portions so large I was unable to finish the meal. Super

Stop in for a cold beer and a Margarita. Bartender was very nice. The Margarita was good. Beer was very cold and served with a very cold glass.

One of my favorite places to eat in Hot Springs. The food is good and so is the service. Spinach enchiladas are amazing and so is the cheese queso. Also the Margaritas are the best around.

The only reason I'm giving this restaurant 2 stars is because the food was okay. The service was awful. We ate lunch which must be their slow time of day but just because it's slow doesn't mean you give poor service. When we first walked...More
