I have been here a couple of times with friends from Pincher Creek. This place is a GEM! The food is great - absolutely love their quesadillas and wings!! The beer from Mexico - SOL - was a nice treat! The staff are very friendly and the memorabilia everywhere keeps your eyes wondering!

Very impressed for being in the middle of nowhere. Hidden Gem amd if you hit it right, you might find really good live music.

Fantastic little Bar/Restaurant/General Store 15 min from Waterton and 20 from Pincher Creek. Authentic atmosphere, Mexican eats, regular live entertainment and a taste of true country rancher locals. A must visit.

The hostess at our Air BnB told us there was 'great' Mexican food down the road if we were hungry, and my bad, I thought 'sure' here we are in the middle of nowhere.. how good can it be? The answer is FABULOUS!!! We pulled up and it did not look like much, but boy we were wrong. I had... More

This is a local watering hole that is becoming well known throughout the area. If you haven't yet, try the Chimichangas. Never having eaten in Mexico I can't attest to the authenticity of the Mexican food. However, I come away thinking I might like it in Mexico.

Tired of chain restaurants? This is a family owned restaurant that serves real food ---great Mexican food and burgers. There is often entertainment as well (check out their website). I had the "red sauce smothered burrito" which was amazing. Served with tasty salsa and sour cream. Large groups should make reservations as it is a small restaurant.
