Very upbeat atmosphere... I went here with a friend and we had a wonderful time... the food was fresh and nicely prepared... but my favorite thing was the prickly pear margarita that the waiter recommended!

If you like Mexican/TexMex food, and have a hankering for tequila, this is THE place to go. The food is really good, and their selection of tequilas is really astounding. Both times there I've had a cocktail made with jalapeno infused tequila and blood orange juice. Amazing! But even if you are not that adventurous and just enjoy a good... More

Hugo is the best waiter! He was always there when our glasses were running low. I recommend the cactus margarita....but it does sneak up on you. Does get crowded from 11pm on. Food was okay, scallop and shrimp special was very skimpy on the protein. Guacamole was probably one of the best I have ever had.

Quick service, great table side guacamole (we had bacon in ours) delicious! Delicious margaritas in several flavors. Try the spicy ones! The burritos are excellent. The kale salad was surprisingly very tasty! I recommend making reservations. We went on a Sunday night at 5pm and it was packed.

My husband and I sat outside and really enjoyed the freshly made guacamole and chips, tacos, and margaritas. It was a little noisy but I'd go again!

Overall good Mex-Food. Probably more famous for the Drinks as the Food itself. Very friendly and funny service.
