We were looking for some Mexican foods but in Old town Scottsdale around 6-7pm, most if not all are booked. We ended up here so we can sit every one, party of 6. Foods was mediocre. Nothing spectacular. Will not be back.

Food was good. Margaritas lacked a kick. Thought I tasted carbonated soda. From Milwaukee and used to tequila, lime juice and agave nectar. Won't go back.
