Stopped late afternoon for margarita- great choices - and homemade chips and salsa. Were seated in their lovely outdoor patio. Shady, lots of greenery and very 'old southwest.'. Excellent service- didn't seem to mind that we were only drinking and munching.

There is singing only in the cantina, not the restaurant. Because of the holidays, the singing nights may vary, so it's best to call and ask to speak with someone in the cantina.
