NEW LOCATION- I've loved this place in the past but tonight at the new location, NOT GOOD at all. I ordered the chicken enchiladas which were mainly tortilla shells with barely ANY chicken in them at all (literally 4 little bites of chicken in each)....More

The food was okay, but overspiced guac & all dishes were overpriced. Staff were not accomodating & we had to ask for things several times. Other Mexican rests in area are better quality, larger portions & less pricey

Hostess is extremely rude. I have heard this complaint from others in addition to my own experience. I frequented this restaurant with family and business clients. None of us will ever go back. Shame, the food and drinks were really good.
