Went to celebrate a Southwestern Thanksgiving dinners with colleagues and friends. It is a small place but the service is good, they have a good flank steak, corona and loaded margaritas. After dinner just go out and walk around to the bars across the street.

Thanks so much for your favorable review. It was difficult doing the Turkey Thanksgiving this year as Thailand has a ban on USA turkeys. We appreciate your business and please come again soon! More

Been here many times over the years and it never disappoints. The new orleans blackened duck breast is amazing. Good service as well with free wifi

Please note that I've only been here once and I've only had their 'London' fish and chips. The atmosphere isn't bad, sort of like a small family restaurant where the walls are adorned to say the message that we're just like a texmex back home. So my mistake in going for their fish and chips associated with London. But boy,... More

Have tried most of the places that serve this cuisine in Pattaya but we end up coming back here as it is consistent and of good value. Food: guacamole is good and they only make it when they find good Avocado in Pattaya which depends on the season. The standard dishes are good and Thai food is of very decent... More

Fresh carnitas on fantastic fresh taco shells. Next up was the daily special, this restaurant's signature BBQ Ribs. They tasted and had the texture of something that had... More

I'm Mexican And I need to say that This is a Tex mex restaurant with all the decoration of a typical place from Acapulco or Veracruz in the 70's. However, here I have eaten the best tortilla soup in my whole life!!! Very nice place most frequently by "gringos".
