First let me say that the food is mediocre at BEST, honestly, its right up there with taco bell. The salsa is good and the margaritas are decent, but the food is crap. All that aside, I knew that going in. I paid for my $36 meal with my credit card and paid the tip in cash. 3 days later,... More

We have come here many many times. We always start with a margarita, and queso fundido. Always piping hot when you get it. Chips are fresh and ready to dip. DH always get fajitas of one kind or another, I usually try something different but the burrito's are huge, can't go wrong with one of them. The staff and owner... More

We were here for lunch on a Sunday. The server was quick to take our order and the food came out hot but bland. My husband like very spicy food, I am on the medium spice level. That we both felt the food was not flavorful was a unusual. The server never offered to refill our drinks or asked us... More

We do an annual pilgrimage to El Toro Bravo every year during the Sailboat Show. We show up with 20 or 30 people and the fabulous people that work there always accommodate us. The food is exactly what you'd expect in a Mexican restaurant and it's okay. The star of the menu in our opinion is the queso fundido. The... More

It's hard to mess up Mexican food and there was nothing wrong with the food however it was just average. The margaritas were flowing though and they were very good. The atmosphere was great because I went with a great bunch of work mates. I will go back again for sure.

Waited over an hour for lost order of food. Watched "regulars" snatch tables and steal chairs from other tables without putting name on wait list. Saw waiters chase off people on the wait list who were told to take the table only to seat new people there. Not worth marginal food when so many other options are available

Hard to get really good Mexican in the east but this is always on my list when I visit Annapolis. Huge menu, luncheon specials are good value, lots of taco chips and good fresh salsa while waiting for mains. Staff are friendly and will accommodate eve the pickiest of requests. Enchiladas, fajitas, tacos, salads and chilli rellenos - all good.... More

Do a good job with the food. Hard to mess up Mexican. Margaritas are nice and strong. Downside of the visit was that the waitress twice forgot our drink order. She did make up for it with better service afterward. There was also a large, loud, drunk and obnoxious group that was unpleasant to sit near and this behavior was... More
