Fresh ingredients prepared on order, we found the chili rellanos and enchiladas very much to our liking. There are a lot of Marines from the base, but they are in their civilian clothes. Also visited by the locals. Check out the menu - they have everything!

Think I would rather have Taco Bell. Nachos looked like something I made myself at home...would rather just have the traditional nachos with side of salsa/guac/queso! Chips were super greasy. Kids ordered cheese quesadillas and they were huge however the cheese they use is also super greasy...made my 14yr old queasy. We thought the rice and beans were descent. The... More

I was very pleased with the portion and the taste. Everything was extremely wonderful until I found a long hair in my enchilada. That really messed everything up for me. I know accidents happen, but hopefully they are wearing hairnets and practicing all of the health standards well. Like I said before though, I very pleased with the taste and... More

So if you're used to eating junk food and fast-food that's really cheap you might like this place. If you're someone who likes healthy food you will not want to get anywhere near it. I don't remember what I ordered but but I do remember it was just a plate full of slop. That's the only way to describe it.... More

Food was unremarkable but good. Mixed drink was strong, though I'm not a great judge of that. Service was friendly. Decor was dive bar.
