$4.50 margaritas during happy hour were great! Chips and salsa were delicious. If you like Fajitas they were great, huge portion that could easily feed two people, but pricey for just one person ($20.99 for chicken).

Decent price for the touristy area. Big proportions that taste really good. You get free chips with 2 different salsas. It has a small lunch special that has 6 different items for 9.99 each. It also has nice atmosphere and scenery. Definitely a good spot with a coffee shop 100 ft away.

Tequilos was a miss. Had hoped for some traditional, 'Real' Mexican cuisine. The plastic sheet menus should have been a dead give away to go elsewhere but we were hungry. The Caliente' Salsa was anything but hot. Even adding copious amounts of Chalupa sauce did little to add flavor. Our waiter, though nice, was a total scatter brain, over bearing, couldnt remember who ordered what etc etc. This will be the last dinner out on The Strand. Leave it to the touristas to enjoy this so so, humdrum dining atmosphere. Sorry Galveston I, you need to step things up on the food scene.

We were a small group of 5. We were seated promptly. Our server was friendly but his attentiveness was borderline. Food was good and the drinks were better! You could tell our order was not served as soon as it was ready because of the temperature of the food. This is not a bad place. I would re-visit, and would recommend for casual eats and drinks

We decided to venture down the Strand and check this restaurant out since there was all but one excellent reviews... we ignored the 1 bad review we saw from recent visits, and let me just say... I’m not sure where that person visited, but there is no way it was this place... we saw no “ zombies” or “ stoned” employees... actually the opposite... they were right on top of everything.... we ate outside and immediately waited on, by Sam, who was excellent and knows his job well!!! Food was delicious and served quickly!!! Trust me, this place is a definite go to, and I promise you, you won’t be surrounded by stoned zombies!!!!
