Some of the best margaritas ever! Very good service, and we enjoyed our meal. They bring a variety of salsas to the table.

Service was great. Food was just average, more like Tex Mex, nothing to write home about. There was no wait time.

After a long drive we wanted a casual dinner in the hotel. We ordered chicken tacos and carne asada tacos. The "soft" tortillas were very dry and tasted like cardboard and the Spanish rice was hard like it had been sitting for hours. We ate the meat and left the rest. The chips were very salty, but the salsa was... More

We eat here practically every time we visit the area. As lovers of Mexican food I feel compelled to do so. It is all so tasty and the choices are abundant. It doesn't hurt that they also serve the best margaritas too. Love the décor and it is mildly reminiscent of Cabo Wabo in Cabo San Lucas. We also eat... More

This place has the best shrimp quesadillas which is what we get every time we visit. The margaritas are also great. The chips and salsa are flavorful with a nice little kick in the salsa. This is probably our 4th or 5th time here. The service is consistently around a 3 star rating as the servers tend to have stale... More

We didn't eat here, but the drinks and music made for a great experience for us. Despite the crowd drink service was prompt and courteous. The band "Gotcha Covered" did a great job putting out the crowded pleasing dance grooves.

We've eaten here before and the food is pretty decent. On this visit, the tortillas were almost unheated, tearing apart if handled, and the beans with our meal were cold. Not sure if it was the kitchens fault or the order sat too long waiting for wait staff but was a definite miss this time! No chips and salsa were... More

This is a nice place for drinks. We had the margaritas and they were great. The salsa was very spicy but good. The food is good. Our bartendar was great and very friendly and helpful.

I had low expectations of this place and was proven wrong. Excellent chips and salsa, good selection of drinks, which were quite tasty, and very friendly service. Despite it being Christmas they were open and cheerful. If I come back to the area I would happily eat here again.
