“Not a bad place!”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

I am usually not a big fan of Tex Mex style food, but I really enjoyed most of what I tried here. The tamales were great and it had a really fun dinning environment.

“This is the place!”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

We had the Mixed Grill Fajitas; Mesquite-grilled chicken breast marinated in fresh citrus & chiles, marinated and flame‑grilled steak, Mexicampi Shrimp and slow-roasted carnitas. And the deep fried ice cream for dessert! Will return!

“Good Food and Service”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

I got the beer-battered tacos, which were tasty, but the chips were even better. Some of the best I've ever had. Service was friendly.

“Easy family dinner”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This is a Tex-Mex restaurant, don't expect authentic Mexican food. But the food is good. Service is great. Nice views of the waterfront from the Bar. The happy hour is fun and festive. The restaurant ambiance in general is fun and festive. Good for group. Love the margaritas.

“Great views”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

It's your typical chevy's but it's located right next to the water where you can enjoy the wonderful views of the marina. They have outside seating to enjoy an amazing sunset. Million dollar view.
