Lots of animals here. The pizza was good, very expensive. thirty dollars for a medium pizza and diet coke. 23% added to each bill, 10% service, 13% tax.

Surprised to find the pizza is good. The kids liked it too! The atmosphere is fun and easygoing :) it has a covered restaurant that is open air and you can look at the people walking by outside the restaurant.

We came in around 8:30pm with a group of 10 people and despite the little language barrier, our server was amazing! She got all orders 100% correct and the wait for food was minimal. We were also treated to free plantain chips and dips!

4 of us went here mid afternoon. The food was excellent, the Margaritas fantastic, and full of local culture. They have several TVs showing all kinds of sports. It is a neat place and is large.
