It looked promising, with the décor and music, but the food was Okay, not over the top or anything. The guacamole was prepared fresh, which is always awesome, but it was too limey. So, it was okay. I've had better though....

We went on a Thursday night and they were not crowded. We sat at a booth in the bar area. The service was prompt. The food was quite good. The Patron margaritas were quite tasty.

The place is gorgeous. The architecture is amazing but the service is terrible. I was told that margaritas were $3.99 all day, so I ordered two. first, the amount of liquor in the margarita was close to nothing. But the taste was good. After I received my bill I was charged 17.99 for two margaritas. I inquired and I was... More

We love this place! In the warm weather you can sit outside. The staff and manager can't do enough for you. I always order the chicken wings which are crisp and delicious. As a starter they give you warm tortilla chips and a delightful salsa which is not too hot. So many Mexican restaurants give you salsa that is really... More

A group of seven went for dinner recently to celebrate a birthday, and we were sorely disappointed in both the food and the service. The waiter cheerfully brought and refilled complementary baskets of chips and both salsa and a white (not cheese) sauce. The chips were warm and fresh, two at our table loved the white sauce though others did... More

The atmosphere on a Monday night is electric. Most times I've been here I only get drinks because the tables are always full. I had a chance to eat this past Monday and was very upset with the service. Their man focus is the bar area and I waited almost 20mins just to get a menu. When I asked the... More

Bartender didn't know if the tequila they were using was 100% Agave. That should have been a tip-off. Food was mediocre. Top shelf margarita tasted watered. Was there a few months ago it was a completely different place food was good drinks were great don't know what happened.
