About the restaurant
it's a mexican restaurant in a small town no ones heard of run by a guy who has no idea what he's doing but it's actually delicious |
shane on colby is literally what shane did on colby over the last 18 months |
every piece of furniture has been randomly placed for maximum whyness |
the decor has been carelessly placed to give the illusion of a clue |
a large outdoor courtyard out the back has seating for a shitload of people but shane still constantly forgets anyones out there |
street side dining out the front creates the perfect mess when the staff haven't checked it & dirty plates line the benches |
margaritas from 7am for the dedicated or coffee & breakfast for the non alcoholics |
margaritas from 12pm for the risk takers or lunch for the non alcoholics |
margaritas from 5pm for the "non" alcoholics or dinner for the non alcoholics |
really it was just a brain fart that sharted | you really need to tory the banana blossom tacos..
i hope you enjoy it as much as shane does

Truely wonderful experience. Don’t let the set price menu deter you. It’s worth every single cent and more. Service was fun and knowledgeable, food was creative and up there with one of the best restaurant experiences. Well done chef and team.
