Four of us went on a Saturday evening for a birthday get together. We had steak, ribs +steak, pulled pork +beef enchiladas. We all said the food was OK, nothing special and we wouldn't rush back. Nothing to complain about but nothing to shout about...More

We took a party of 24 people back to the restaurant for a special birthday and we were very disappointed to find the food was not as good as our previous visits. Need to do better Calico.

Ever since they changed their menu it has been amazing. Now there are lots of gluten free options like pizza bases and a variety of pastas. It has a fun pirate theme which would be great for families with children.
