The bright colors of the carved and enameled chairs and tables give this restaurant a light and joyful feel. The wafting Mexican music makes it easy to put your worries aside and enjoy good food and drinks with your family or friends.

This place is fun and the food is great! If you like heat, then ask for the hot salsa - followed promptly by a margarita. The menu is huge so anyone can find a good choice. The atmosphere is very festive, so be ready for a laugh.

Delicious. We ordered from lunch menu, very good, very reasonable price. Beer was nice and cold, both draft and bottle. Service was excellent! Fun atmosphere. Clean restrooms. Would be fun in the summertime to be on the outside patio; then hopefully the fountains would be cleaned up and running (only downside, looked yuk now).
