One of my favorite places to go out with people. Warm atmosphere, with a touch of grunginess; a cross between a mexican restaurant and a really, really nice dive bar. Amazing nachos. They are the best nachos I have ever had and probably ever will. A plate feeds 4.

The beer selection is respectable. Extensive bottle list with a decent amount of Mexican beers and a few popular Belgians and Germans added into the mix of American craft (and not so craft) lagers and ales. A good draft list with swill taps. Also a very large tequila selection. If you get a hankering for something premium, The Birch, a craft beer bar, is right around the corner with a 20 tap rotating draft list of rare and quality beers in addition to an equally impressive bottle list.

The wait staff at T West do their job and are pleasant. Service has always been quick and quality for me.

Bottom line: affordable, amazing nachos, great beers, and good vibes.

NOT FOR FAMILIES. Brought my gf and ten year old daughter. About the same time our food showed up, a guy at the bar sucker punched another guy, got dragged out by another customer, and tried to get back in to keep fighting. I asked the waitress for our check and she said that usually doesn't happen DURING THE DAY. If that's the kind of place your looking for, enjoy.

What can I say about this hidden gem, so hidden that I can't even give directions that are good - just mapquest it - that caters to locals only? Well, the ambiance is great and it is somewhat cozy despite having a fairly large building. Also, has a small game room to shoot pool/darts, watch sports and a pinball machine. Not huge on Mexican food but the food served here is great. I actually had wings and a burger, believe it or not, my last time here and those were damn good. The nacho app is HUGE. The beer menu consists of about 12 taps, with some rotating, of some major micros and local breweries. About 60 or so bottles, some macro and quite a few Latin American beers (this is a Mexican joint after all). Still, some good local breweries repped as well as micros and a mix of Belgians and a few Germans. They rotate seasonals and bring in some new stuff (i.e. DFH Worldwide Stout, Brook/Weihen Hopfenfest) on a temporary basis so you should be able to find something to try. Prices are on par with the other beer bars in the area. A great chill place to hit up once in a while.
