Friendly service. Awesome margaronas. Good food. We had the chimichanga, burrito, & chipotle fajitas. It was all very good. Wasn't crazy about their salsa but still very good food and drinks.

Lunch was very good and seemed quit authentic but not a lot to choose from for picky 12 yr olds. Decor was entertaining with Mexican music.
