I don't drink liquor, but their two for one margaritas are great! The food is ok and so are the prices. Sometimes they have someone playing the guitar on the outside eating area. It is close to the university for the college students.

Food is not bad, but there are better Mexican restaurants in Hammond. The service is good but the location is not the greatest. Be aware of the train schedule if you decide to sit outside. You are 50ft from the tracks.

The atmosphere was a lot of fun with indoor and outdoor seating. Service was swift, food was good and prices were reasonable. Location is in a neat downtown/old town area that is safe. Plenty of parking.
