The atmosphere is fun & vibrant. The menu is extensive and looks delicious. The service, for the mid-upscale prices, should be MORE than your average, Mom & Pop, Mexican joint. The waitress suggested no drinks. She was not too familiar with the ingredients of various...More

Had fun time with family. This is a kind of a sports bar cum restaurant and the recipes are amazing, the service is also exceptional. Ideal for a weekend dinner or lunch with friends and family

Great typical Mexican food, along with some different dishes that have been awesome. Can be kind of a long wait on the weekends, but they did buy the space across the hallway from them, so the extra tables might cut that wait down.

I've eaten twice at this restaurant and find it to be expensive and mediocre. I have eaten at other Mexican restaurants in the area and like them much better.
