“Tequila Shots !!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2012 via mobile

We've been hanging at Alex's since he opened a couple of years ago . Cheap beer and Tequila! Concha, Alex's wife runs a little kitchen and make great quesadillas and hamburgers. The place is very basic but is a good spot for late night snacks and a truly Mexican bar experience. It's loud with good music and Alex makes sure everyone is having a good time. I've seen everything from 83 year old Mexican Grandmas dancing on the bar to spur of the moment salsa parties. He has some sports channels to keep up with the 'outside' and if you sit there long enough , eventually you will see all the locals dropping by to see what's up in the area. Not fancy .... Just fun!

Keep rocking Alex :)
