La comida muy normal a precios altos, la limpieza deficiente, bien situado, el sitio necesita una reforma urgente ya que se ve viejo. .Very average food at high prices, poor cleaning, well located, the place needs an overhaul as it looks old.

Very casual atmosphere but good food with decent portion size. Indoor and outdoor seating. Most of staff is not bilingual but menus are in english and spanish. Service is good but sometimes a little slow. Average pricing.

The formally attired wait staff is very attentive and quick. Inside is a bit noisy with the hum of restaurant workings, TV, and air conditioners. There is a very full bar that takes up a whole (long) wall. Outside is less noisy (street noise) and...More
