Some friends and I came in on a Tuesday and enjoyed the taco Tuesday specials and the summertime watermelon margarita. The food was delicious and the staff are very friendly! I would highly recommend OTB Bowie

The host seemed in the "zone", didn't seem to care whether we were there or not. Food was not hot, but edible.
