OMG, they have a salsa bar is all I thought. The food was wonderful, the staff is super friendly and helpful when trying to pick WHAT's great. Just be careful of the photographers while eating your meal. They can be annoying and take a picture that cost $30 bucks!

Dined here after a trade show at the Convention Center. Easy to walk to. Extensive selection of tequilas and drinks. Waitress was very helpful. Enjoyed the many options at the salsa bar. Shrimp tacos were fresh and delicious.Outdoor seating was lovely with nice view of street activities.

The resturant seems very popular. Was busy with most tables full. The noise level was very high. Service was good and the waitresses seemed to be working as a team. Food very very ordinary.

Overall our experience here was very average. Nothing stood out as particularly good or bad. The tacos were good but on the small side. No sides were included, and chips and salsa had to be paid for in addition to the meal. I would not necessarily recommend this restaurant to others, but it is very close to the conference center...

Very festive environment. I and my wife visited the old town branch day after the thanksgiving. The place was full with customer. We had to wait about 25 minutes to get our table. Initially the front desk promised us to give a table in 10-15 minutes. I had to check with her after 25 minutes to get a table (it... More
