I’m sorry but saying that the price of avocados is too high is no excuse not to stock the Mexican staple food of guacamole. Every business has to suffer high prices of ingredients at certain times - it’s called running a business. Would I expect...More

I loved the food here and it seems well priced but really it’s quite expensive as the portions are all small so you need several dishes. The drinks are also great but the tumblers for the margaritas are tiny and $20, you only get two...More
