“better than I expected”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

Hadn't eaten at OTB before.

Went on Tuesday and apparently it was half-priced drinks night. Don't know if that's a regular thing or not but we liked it! After drinks and chips with salsa and guacamole we ate dinner. Had the vegetable fajitas without the cheese and sour cream. It was filling and tasty--couldn't finish it. I would order this again.

Stopped in for Lunch. Had the Appetizer platter - a LOT of food plus a cup of their soup.

Service was excellent. Decent place - washrooms were clean.

Reviewed 28 December 2012

Had dinner here one night while staying at Hotel Indigo down the street. Plenty of food. Typical Mexican food, but overall good. Drinks were good too.
