Saw this place had great reviews on Google Maps and TripAdvisor so decided to check it out while on vacation. The building and decor are a bit older and dated, but that doesn't factor into the rating given.
Drinks here were pretty good, both got margaritas. Not too weak/strong which can be difficult to achieve. Whoever tends bar here is good.
Food was pretty disappointing. Free chips and green chile salsa was a mixed bag. The green chile salsa was good, plenty of heat without sacrificing flavor, though a bit runny. Chips were the dreaded super thin variety (a pet peeve of mine) which break at even the slightest scoop attempt. Almost impossible to eat unless you have a curved chip. I'd rather not get served the chips and dip than be presented something that requires much work and planning to eat.
The Green Chile Lobster Dip is apparently what they're known for and was highly recommended by our waitress. What we received was almost amateurish. The menu describes it as "Generous Chunks of Lobster Meat Sautéed with Green Chiles, Fresh Garlic, Spinach, Asiago & Fontina Cheese. Crispy Flour Tortilla Chips." There were maybe three small chunks of lobster in the entire dip which was the size of the small dip cup that the free stuff came in. Flavor was ok, a bit lacking/unseasoned. The consistency of the "dip" was miserable and it's greatest failing. The cheese had cooled on top into a large mass incapable of being scooped, we had to use a fork to cut, scoop and place on top of the chips. Under the cheese was a watery mess that was immune to being dipped as all the content ran off the chip as soon as you lifted it. This was their "famous" special for $9. Super disappointing and probably colored our perspective for the rest of the meal.
I ordered the Carne Adovada which actually had a pretty good blend of spice and flavor. The meat, unfortunately, was on the dry side as if it had been sitting out for a minute. The only moisture coming from the sauce. Also strange that it came with one huge flour tortilla (literally bigger than the place) instead of 2-3 small/medium sized ones. Difficult to maneuver food onto the tortilla without a second plate.
Girlfriend got the Blue Seafood Enchiladas. She said it was ok, but suspicious that the white fish in the entree was not actually halibut as advertised. We both grew up eating seafood and agreed that this was likely a cheaper white fish. Her meal was a bit too salty though.
Overall, not terrible, but we were let down due to reading the five star reviews online.
