Our party of 8 was seated promptly over the Labor Day weekend and the service was slow but friendly. The restaurant was not crowded but the staff seemed harried. Drinks were very good and the large bar is inviting. The food came out between lukewarm and cold and we had to send some of it back to be reheated. The black bean soup had excellent flavor the second time around and the meaty pigs wings appetizer was also very flavorful. My shrimp scallops and lobster in tequila was interesting but heavy. I wanted to really like this place due to its size and convenient Eastham location, but like most other restaurants in this spot over the last few years it was underwhelming at best. Go for the margaritas and the appetizers in the bar.

New Mexican place is great! Salsa and chips and drinks on the patio. Excellent Margarita. Vegan tacos. Nice and polite staff.

I love mexican food, and lived in DC for awhile where great mexican restaraunts abound. When we checked into Sheraton, was happy to see a Mexican restaraunt next door. Unfortunately, the food and the service weren't great. The food was rather unspired and was bland. Nothing about spices used or salsa stuck me as especially good. The server was waiting on what seemed like half the restaraunt and was running around like crazy. As a result, service slow albeit felt a bit bad for server as she did best she could.

Bottom line, if you really like Mexican food then you will likely be dissapointed. If you don't then maybe you won't notice :)

First off, love that they have GF items on the menu, clearly marked. I have a little one who is gluten sensitive so I am always anxious when taking her out to eat. Most places haven't a clue what gluten even is, nor do they seem to care. We got very basic fare so can't speak to to menu but the chicken quesadillas were yummy (CAN you screw those up?) And the salsa was so good I was almost drinking it. Very fresh tasting and salty. Decor was a little much but my kids loved it and were entertained by it while waiting for our food. The waitresses were very nice and the service was attentive for a slow night.
