Enjoyed this fun and historical in Galveston. Food was tasty and service was good. We were there on a Tuesday night so it wasn’t very busy. Compared to Mexican restaurants in Houston, this was a good value for the money. Enjoy!

Food was hot and fresh, very good. The sauce could have been hotter but I guess since it has to appeal to the masses they need to keep it somewhat mild. Was not asked for a refill on my tea but I usually only drink 1 glass. Overall I would visit again.
