Went here on a Monday "date night" with my boyfriend. We had been here before and thought it was "okay" and that pretty much sums it up. Staff that just isn't warm, welcoming or caring (although, when we left, I have to admit that our waitress FINALLY showed some brightness), doesn't make up for average food. The chips and salsa?...

Great meal, great staff. Parking one block away. Paid $17.00 for a couple of hours. The price of the meal was reasonable and the food was very fresh and good. They make food from scratch. Nice size, nice portions. Would go again.

One of my favourite restaurants in Chicago. Great ambience. Margaritas are very good. Portions are big and very tasty.

This place hasn't changed in 25 yrs....food is still good but charged us $4.00 for a side of sour cream that was literally 2Tbsp.....service was a bit lacking & we had a reservation & still had to wait 15 min. for our table. I luv the location & will go back but they def need to improve some things.

We were welcomed warmly and seated right away. The menu was varied and extensive. Ordered Margaritas, one strawberry and one original. Both were really good and quite large and not diluted.
