The food was delicious. Very authentic. The bar area was extremely loud and a lot of the noise carried over into the restaurant. It made it hard to hear each other.

The food was good & service was average or slightly above average. There seemed to be a little more focus on the bar than the patrons in the restaurant

I always stop by it is next door to the Marriott Courtyard. A locally supported Mexican restaurant with authentic food, nothing fancy and a favorite with the locals. Especially fun on a Sunday night.
