This used to be our second home, then Eddie's uncle took over when Eddie passed away, and things have progressively gone downhill. Firstly, Gabby left, and he was a crucial element to this restaurant. Secondly, the food and bar service began to decline. Finally, Alex...More

Having eaten true Mexican food, (or "Tex-Mex") I'm sorry, but this is "slop." Eddie (God rest his soul) was not Mexican, he was Puerto Rican. The food all tastes the same, and the "rolling" Mariachic's are more of a pain in the butt than anything...More
