Situated in an old police station some of the tables are placed in old jail cells. Decorations come from Mexico to create a nice atmosphere. Food was better than fast food mexican. Roasted corn was a bit too burnt for my taste. Waitress was encouraging ordering a lot of food and beverages. Nice downtown location that is becoming gentrified.

A magnet in the downtown, this place is a trully unique place to eat. It has been here quite a long time and that is a compliment to the great food and drinks. The setting is the old City Police Station and holding cells. The kids love sitting in the old cells, and sometimes you may have to wait a... More

Thank you for the review and for the loyal patronage. This is our flagship restaurant and we have been here since 1985! Eating in cells is definitely a unique part of the experience - we only wish the city built more cells when they built the building. George seems to like it nonetheless. Hope we see you again soon.

Took my family of four here for dinner. Very cool place but the food was terrible. Took 1/2 hour to get out soft drinks and over an hour to get our meals. 3 out of the 4 were disgusting. They told one of our kids that his side of corn was taking too long so he's going to need to... More

I called at 4:30 for a 6pm reservation. The snarky staff member informed me they would only accept call ahead seating requests 1/2 hour ahead. So I called at 5:30 and was informed that they would put in our name, but when we got there at 6pm we would have to wait 2 hours. So we went to El Rodeo... More

Old jail converted into a restaurant. Rumors of hauntings (never any indication myself but I like it). Good food. Great lime-in-the-coconut margs and chips/salsa.

Thanks for the review! We are glad you enjoyed. While the spirit that allegedly roams our cells is believed to be mostly benevolent, were glad you haven't run in to him. He hates sharing his salsa. We look forward to seeing you again! More

Great drinks, great food, sat in the bar with another couple. Had apps. Queso cheese dip was awesome, all food was excellent. The most amazing part of our visit was Kevin our server, he was probably the best waiter I have ever experienced. He had the right balance of being attentive and not being intrusive.
