I went here with friends and the food was really good. This is a BYOB restaurant. I ordered the chicken tacos and they were tasty! The restaurant was pretty quite, but I went during the week so maybe that was why. Service was great and...More

We had the burritos along with frozen margaritas. The tortilla was light and crispy and very tasty. The service was quick and friendly. The decor is all hand carved furniture and very festive. Everything made for a wonderful "fiesta" and a very enjoyable time together.
