I really love this OTB. The food is fresh and good, the drinks are always perfect and the bar atmosphere is enjoyable. Hands-down the best fresh chips & queso and steak. So far the service at this location has been great. Looking forward to coming...More

It was apparently National tequila day, so I got a house margarita, which was pretty good for a house brand. Fish tacos were really good. We enjoyed ourselves quite a bit, but after 2-1/2 hours realized the place never got super busy, which seems odd.

One of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Elk Grove. The staff is always very friendly and the food is always great! Lots of vegetarian options and you can even alter non-veggie menu items if you like. Love this place!
