I'm not sure wat authentic Mexican food is - the back patio where we sat is very small and very shaded - nice on a hot day. The nachos and margaritas were very good, but I felt the food portions were a bit small. I...More

The chicken fajitas were awesome and the chips and queso dip were super good as well. Margaritas are fresh and very well made. Such a fun vibe.
