Stopped by for a quick drink and snack. Had some chips and guacamole and a glass of margarita. The latter was not bad at all (although personally I prefer a slightly different style). The place was packed on Sat night.

The service was excellent. The portions were large, prices reasonable, staff friendly and helpful. We were a group of 6, and we were seated quickly on the patio.

What can I say, I love this place!! If it fit in my suitcase, I would take it home. The only thing wrong, is it is too far from where I live. LOL. We visited there twice while in Mesa, the chips and salsa are...More
