Great decor makes this a relaxing experience. My husband had the beef fajitas while I had the chicken. Both had great flavor and were served sizzling on the plate. Their margaritas are good, especially during happy hour! Tip: they do call ahead for seating.

A nice mix of healthy and not so Mexican food. The addition of the rotisserie grill was great, some of the best chicken around. This location has a nice outdoor patio too.

Very pretty restaurant. We have always liked the beautiful courtyard. We like the thin chips. Chips are served with three types of salsa. The mild salsa had little flavor, tomatillo salsa was a little sweet and the spicy was our favorite. The queso was very...More

Went for Father's Day and it wasn't horribly crowded. The wait staff was excellent and kept our chips and salsa full. The menu was large and the food good and plentiful.

Able loss takes Mexican food to a higher level than the sometimes tiring TexMex. The menu offers a different perspective and it's superb. The service and atmosphere are both a giant step above the norm.

The food was excellent. There is one complaint, however, that needs to be said. We ordered a pitcher of margaritas and it was so full of ice that the four of us barely got a full glass. It would of been better and less pricey...More
