We went here for some fajitas and beer; the food was excellent but the restaurant was so busy the waiters were flying around at top speed. It was hard to get their attention. The ambience was extremely loud.

It is one of those pubsy/ mexicana establishments. Upbeat staff who know exactly why you came. And they do deliver successfully. Ice cold beer, a satisfying menu and great tunes to listen to while you imagine staying long past your departure date.

I agree with Mike J. The staff at the general will do everything they can to accommodate you. You may be able to contact them a head of time and they can try to get the fight for you.
