The food is OK, "gringo" style. They moved to a larger location a couple of years ago, but the new one is too crowded and way too noisy to even talk.

We weren't sure if the server was angry with us or simply not pleased to have to work, she wasn't a pleasure to deal with! It was the attitude; other than that, everything was done well!

This is a very popular local Mexican restaurant. I think the food is good but not great. I like the friendly service but their margaritas are nothing to get excited about. We go there often, especially on "Taco Tuesday".

We stop by for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The servers and hostess were great and very helpful. The food was better than I expected.

Happy hour is fun, but the bar area is very crowded. The quality of their food ingredients is very poor. The chicken tastes like it came from a can. I'll pass.

Ok food. Fajita beef strips were small and overlooked. Waitstaff was fine. Kid meals ok, but cheese quesadilla is a fairly low bar to clear. Skinny Margarita was not great.

The atmosphere is always fun, and the food is great The only reason it is not 5 stars is the long wait times for a table. I guess it is a victim of it's own success!
