Need a great place for a quick, cheap meal? $2 beers and great chips and salsa! The service was great as well as the atmosphere. They have a nice patio and is family friendly.

This is one of my favorite places to eat when I go back home. I love their gringo pies. Of course you have to have their margaritas if you you go!!!

We still miss the old venue on the hill, but the newer facility is certainly more practical! Thankfully, the tamales are exactly the same, as are the margaritas.

Food is good, but the fun and friendly atmosphere makes this place. Every time we go to Natchez, we try to eat here once. Roast beef poboys are fabulous, and the margaritas are good, too!
