I thought it was really good. This other person went a couple of years ago, I guess maybe it's improved a lot? I just moved here and was glad to find a Mexican place pretty close to my old place in Memphis. Great cheese dip, salsa is good, rice is to die for!
Service was terrible. Waiter took forever to get to us, and it was slow at the time. A rather cold gentleman, and couldn't have been more uninformed. Had no clue about what the bar had to offer or what the specials were. Menu had no mention of drinks. He then quotes us the wrong prices after checking. Turns out prices are ridiculous. $17 for a large house margarita. Really? $17? It definitely wasn't that good, with its cheap mix that was used. Yuck. Beer was terribly warm. Compared to ...view morePapas and Beer and others, portions were small. Chips must be the lowest form of storebought. Gross. The salsa they served had a metal taste. They do have a salsa bar as an option. Unfortunately, they weren't keeping up and had a bin or two that stayed empty for the hour we were there. Again, it was a slow night, but had to wait at the cashier. The waiters were flirting with her in the back. Take a look at the health inspection behind the cashier. Can't recall the exact final rating but remember thinking at the time it was the lowest I had seen at a restaurant. Don't bother with this place. Plenty of other options.view less
