We were up for our first night in Snowshoe and went in with a party of 4 without a reservation. Although the said a 40 min wait, they seated us MUCH more quickly. Both our Bartender and Server were really friendly, the food was great, and very affordable (compared to prices in Washington, DC where we live.)

We love to wait at the bar, have a drink and chat up other patrons. The staff are all amazing. This time we had burritos but the Texas Tortas was beyond words. Really rich though.

We have been coming to Snowshoe for the past 4 years and have never tried this restaurant until last night. Almost wished we just went to our regular restaurant instead of this one. The menu was really limited, prices were high, service mediocre and food average. We will not return to this restaurant.

It is only open for lunch/brunch on certain days (think holidays and weekends). The food was a nice change from the other restaurants. The mixed drinks were refreshing but wish the salsa had more veggies (just personal preference). If you want something different, be sure to check this spot out. It's close to the slopes and a quick spot to... More

We arrived at 6p on a Friday night. Had no problem with service. The waitress shares responsibility with a runner, even the manager was helping out, Fish burrito was very good. Tacos were short on meat. Food is served with white rice, odd but tasty.

Friendly, but slow service. Waited an hour for table but to be expected on Saturday night. Good margaritas. Limited menu and somewhat pricey. My veggie burrito at 14.00 was good and husbands tacos were good too, they may have been 11-12 dollars. Kids menu had chicken tenders and other options. Good food, pricey, very slow but friendly

This place had delicious Tex-Mex will an unexpected flair. They used some non- traditional Tex-Mex ingredients, but it was absolutely delicious. For example, my soft taco included shrimp with feta cheese. It was unexpected, but it turned out to be delicious. We were seated quickly, which was a plus for our group size of 9 people, too!

Went with some friends for "brunch." This wasn't what I would consider brunch. We each had a breakfast burrito, but the "chorizo" was really diced ham. The cheese in the breakfast burrito was all at one end, so we ended up with a glob of cheese on one end and scrambled eggs and diced ham at the other. No bueno,... More

I typically eat here at least once during my ski trips to Snowshoe. I always eat dinner early so there's never a wait. The food was good for the dishes and appetizers our group got. However, the portions are very skimpy, especially given the price. I'm appalled that they charge $4/pp for "endless" salsa and chips. I understand they don't... More

So as adults we liked this place. The entrees were great and margaritas were excellent. We had Chicken Tacos and a Taco Salad. The tortilla soup was not the best, the flavor was ok but had too many beans and not much else. Also, unlike most traditional Mexican restaurants chips and salsa cost extra and on the menu are called... More
