I have tried to eat here 3 separate times. Each and every meal I have eaten here I have found a hair in my food! I am very particular about finding hair in my food, and it ruins my entire meal. The first time I...More

Maybe the only Mexican eatery I have visited with an all gringo staff. Food is ok and prices are very good. Service, on my visit, was poor. Decor is eye candy.

The food described on the menu did not match the end product. I ordered the nopal very disappointed. No real Mexican ingredients. It wasn't bad overall but now I know. The waitress was friendly. But I won't be back
