I really like the Tex-Mex type of selection they have. The food is fairly cheap and comes in quite large portions. Definitely go for the South of the Border Fiesta Nacho Platter. The half-plate serves two people and costs $8, while the full plate which serves four or more costs $10. It comes heavily topped with chili, cheese, olives, scallions, jalapenos, lettuce, guacamole, and sour cream. It definitely goes well with a shot or two of their wide variety of tequilas, or go for their melon margarita.
Their specialty drinks run from $4.99 to $6.99, their beers run from $2.99 to $4.99, and the shots of tequilas run from $3.99 to $9.99 or more. Their drink menu is chalk full of specialty beers from all over the world and have a list exceeding the 100 mark.
Other appetizers include sweet fries (which are EXCELLENT, and comes with a raspberry vinigrette dipping sauce), coconut shrimp - which is a bit pricier and smaller than the other appetizers, they also have other nacho appetizers, and a salad or two for the health conscious. Also another one of my favorites is the pulled pork quesadilla ($7) and their burgers are always a hearty welcome after a long day at work or in class. They have 1/2 burgers, turkey burgers, and their fish sandwich is delicious. They're all under 7 bucks and come served with chips or fries and loads of tomatoes, lettuce, and whatever else you desire.
It definitely comes highly recommended for a relaxed and loose place to hang out and unwind.
