The service was good. The food was mediocre. The margaritas were better than the food. Chips and guacamole were fine. The prices are reasonable. Nothing was incredible but neither was it horrible. If you're in the area then it's a decent place to visit.

An excellent tradition!!! Their happy hour at the bar is a plus! A Margarita & meal for under $20! Margaritas are excellent! They gave us a free sample of their homemade tacos! Definitely the best! Quesadillas were just OK. Great atmosphere & service!

I have been at this location nearly a dozen times over the last 10 years and I enjoy the consistent good quality and good service. I have found it to be one of the most consistent Mexican restaurants in the Fort Lauderdale area

Had a very good meal, menu is somewhat typical for Mexican although very entertaining. Found the prices reasonable and service was excellent. Would not hesitate to come back.

Expensive!! Limited menu. Slow service and when one has to ask for something to spice it up beware. For those who say it is best in town you need to get out of town and find real Mexican food. I guess too many snow birds.
