Definitely a good choice for Tex Mex in Aruba! The service was island-paced as expected, but the music and setting was fun and upbeat. It is located in the center of the shopping mall, so I would recommend eating here and then doing some shopping and seeing the fountain show. The food was very tasty, you really can't go wrong!

We had dinner here one night while in Aruba. They have a good, typical Tex-Mex menu. They start out with warm tortilla chips and salsa. I had sangria, which was very refreshing on a hot night.

Food was really good. We had the jalapeño cheese dip, steak and shrimp fajitas & the combo plate with tacos and enchiladas. My only compliant would be that the steak was more of a shaved steak and not steak strips. Other than that ... good food, service and atmosphere.

The entire atmosphere was family friendly fun.The food was very typical Mexican. The drinks were good. If you time it right, there is evening entertainment in the plaza of the mall that was very enjoyable. The staff were friendly and competent and the price was reasonable. I would definitely repeat.

Had a great time in the open air seating area. The food was delicious and came in large portions. Don't forget to ask for the hot sauce!
