Visited here a few times. Booking always recommended and often essential especially Friday / Saturday nights. Travel by public transport to location. Likes: menu choice and food quality, good cocktails and reasonable (not cheap) pricing, Staff very friendly but also very busy and restaurant has atmosphere. Dislikes: it can take time to place an order. Overall a very good place... More

Went without reservation on a Saturday evening and only got a table thanks to the willingness of the host and a bit of luck as people were queueing. Place was packed and we soon found out why. From very good cocktails to great Tex-Mex food, all paired with a great atmosphere. Very friendly waitress, we didn't need to wait too... More

Found this place on a recent business trip to Stuttgart - a bit out of the way but within easy walking distance of the main railway station. Glad I found it, excellent food, reasonable prices, good service, good atmosphere and did I mention the cocktails? Well, I should - excellent range of cocktails priced at under 5 euros during happy... More

Ate here with quite a few friends, and overall the food was very good. My burrito was small but tasty and everyone else in my party liked the food. Guacamole was fresh and very tasty. Drink prices for things other than beer are much too high even in happy hour. Overall the prices could have been a bit lower. Service... More

I had an ocean asada and a cocktail, my husband soft tortillas and a coke. After a while (40 min) came our food. My dish was really good but in my opinion 16€ for that was just too much. The portion was ok but it was nothing too spectacular. My husband´s dish was tiny and tasted ok. The service was... More

We didn't have a booking, and so had to sit outside, but the weather was good and so it was no hardship - although the atmosphere was better inside. Food was good, and service friendly although not speedy - but they were busy!

I am a true ceasar salad fan. I love the one at joe pena's because it is served with lots of sauce, which is key to this famous dish. It is served in a comestible plate, which adds fun to the dish. There is a decent amount of chicken, croutons, salad etc. The guacamole is great too, and prepared in... More

In general is the place maybe ok but I had quite the negative experience. The refried beans to the burrito were bad and the server refused to take care of that until the manager appeared. Otherwise drinks are ok.
