Our favoite TexMex (all the way from its original in Dallas, Texas) in Dubai. We always order the quesadillas, big burrito and chimichanga with a couple of Mexican Flag drinks and the guacamole made tableside. Yummm!

We visited this restaurant at National-Day and as expected every place around JBR was crowded. But I would have expected that the restaurant would at least increase its staff for the evening as National-Day is a day where a lot of customers can be expected. We had to wait more than 45 minutes for our 2 Burger and 1 Enchilada... More

Inside the restaurant you have a nice decor of mexican style. Starters are good but main course needs slight improvement in taste and quantity. View from this hotel is good

My order was delivered in about (1) hour, the nacho chips were still warm and so was the burrito. I got a whole bag of nacho chips, very large salad, (3) large portions of salsa, refried beans, guacamole and a large burrito. The portions are enough for two meals for me. The guacamole was very tasty, the salsa had good... More

We have been coming here for years. Really good Mexican food at an ok price. Service can be a bit up and down. Great location on the JBR walk. The Fajitas are always very good.

The brisket tacos are a hit, and make sure you have a margarita. Food was done in good time. The guacamole was alright, needed some more spice. Nice place that is open even for late lunch.

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
