Fun for the bar crowd, but lousy and expensive mexican food. Charge for every little extra. Sour cream, Guac and sauce usually comes on a chimichanga. And my daughter got cheap taco sauce like taco bell packets for her taco.

Always loved this place (not that they have been a culinary gem) but they seem to have gone down a bit more. Very disappointed that our drink that was ordered with fresh lime juice came with Rose's. Service was friendly but had no depth.

My husband and I came here for Mexican food. The bar area seemed a happy place to be, but we were hungry. We had no problem getting a table and the staff was pleasant enough. However, though the fajitas were served with plenty of chicken and veggies, they seemed to have no Mexican seasonings and were quite bland. My Margarita... More

Stopped in for late night food and drinks. The place was packed but we found a table by the bar. The food was at best average and the service was a bit slow that night, however, the atmosphere was fun and the crowd was good. Overall, seemed more like a place to drink then eat, but I could have gone... More

Stopped in here with my husband for a drink and some bar apps. Drinks are served in mason jars, which is a nice touch. Ordered some greasy nachos and wings... nothing amazing, but hit the spot with our drinks. The food being ordered by the tables behind us looked like good, generous portions.

This restaurant has the best Mexican food and drinks at the Weirs. The family that owns it are the sweeties people that you'll ever want to meet and you will meet them.

We made it here during bike week with our friends, who dine here regularly because they have a house on the lake. They were bragging about how wonderful the owners are and the food is fabulous as well. They always take home leftovers. Our server was ready for the crowds and brought us our round of margaritas quickly. She kept... More

We ended up eating here by accident, it was the best accident in the history of the world! From the outside and first impression it seemed like a biker bar, and it is, but it was not intimidating at all. The food was absolutely delicious! The prices are also affordable. Definitely worth a try if you like Mexican!
