Good meal as usual. Staff was friendly and we had the place all to ourselves for a change. Wanted shredded beef tacos but got the regular beef tacos instead, no worries they were tasty.

We ordered a beef burrito (which was very large) and a 1/2 bbq chicken (which also was enormous). The burrito tasted of nothing: it was just horrible and after 4 mouthfuls I gave up. My friend's chicken was bungled; she asked for a lighter amount of bbq sauce and instead they simply didn't give her any. It was so dry... More

This is one of my favorite places and I go there frequently. It's very good food but the service can sometimes be a bit slower than average. If you know that up front and plan ahead it is well worth the wait. Everything is made from scratch and very delicious. In Dec. 2016 I took my family there when they... More

I have been eating at the Pattaya branch for the past 10 years. However in the past 18 months I have noticed that the portion size of food has gotten smaller and quality control is non existence! I ordered a Texas Crash and Burn burrito. . It was burnt, black around the edges. But. . Even worse. . . The... More

I have been to this Mexican restaurant before and it is still pretty good value for what you get. Sitting out side and watching the going ons and having a drink or two (Margaritas) and eating a good meal makes a great Atmosphere. Will Definitely come back

My friend and I went for the fajita Friday, and got a generous portion with all the sides like beans, salsa, rice, sour cream and cheese. This is rare for Thailand. Everything was delicious and seasoned perfectly. Especially as someone who lives in Thailand, it is hard to find good Mexican food in this country, so it was a very... More

lived in pattaya for 8 years and its really just barely called mexican. And not sure the male cooks even wash their hands after petting the dogs, picking their noses and checking their phones outside before they make my meal. i don't eat there anymore.

Saturday night the inside tables full but still one open for me. So thank you to previous reviewers for not being there. Ditto on the good comments; good stiff drinks, tasty food, big portions. Decor getting a little tatty, but hey, still gives that authentic Tex-MEX vibe. I didn't have any trouble with staff. They were very busy, but okay,... More

I Am sorry to say, the place is a shadow of what it used to be! The Staff is rude, ignorant and find it more important to play With there phones Than to serve customers. This used to be a really nice restaurant to take your friends and family to, but With todays Staff working there? No thanks...

When I first came to Pattaya a decade or so before this was the only Mexican food resturant around and it had different owners. I stopped coming here because the food quality decreased as new owners took over. I came here for the first time in a long time to see if it was and better. I got a beef... More
