The restaurant looked cozy from the outside, and it is extremely well located. As soon as we entered we feel something was wrong. Latin music to a volume more akin to a dance-floor than to a restaurant. The waiter handed us 2 menus (we were four), and then a third with different options (?)... There was a very strange option...

Needed to find a place to watch Monday night football and when we walked by in the afternoon we saw this place advertised that they showed the games so decided to go. They do not have an American menu and when I tried to figure out what kind of margarita I could get but finally gave up and got a... More

Just had our Christmas party here, we only have them a weeks notice and they accommodated 40 people! We had a great meal with excellent service. They even cleared the tables to the side so we could dance the night away! Thank you.

Apparently when you filter for breakfast this restaurant pops up. Breakfast at papa bill's sure why not, went there by cab and then at the door they tell me they don't open until 1pm?!

They have a delicious margarita tamarindo. The menu is heavy on meat choices and if you are dining in a group, you can order your meat choices by the kg. My favorite for one person is the molcajete.

The title says it all. The place is ugly, the rest rooms old and not very clean. Some dishes were ok, others really bad. The waiting staff is exceptionally rude, with an attitude as if they are wasting their time on the guests.

We went on 21 of December 2014r, ordered meat and 2 fish main dishes. My order was so oversalted... I was unable to eat this. Meat for other person was dry. Another dish of fish was dry too. It looks like all meat and fish they use in the restaurant - from multiple freezing and defreezing, or expired. Noting was... More

This is a small chain with several locations in Mexico City. The restaurants are large and lively. This is not the place for a romantic quiet meal. Good place to unwind with friends or to watch a game. The menu has a variety of offerings, mostly Mexican dishes and bar-type food. My kids saw someone getting wings, so we ordered... More

So this is a great place to watch a game or a fight with some average food and a bottle of alcohol. There are some great value packages which include one kg of meat a a bottle of Bacardi at a very reasonable price. Do not expect anything fancy or out of the normal.

This is a cheesy chain to be avoided. They are all over the city but with so many better places to eat, why bother?
