One of the worst dining experiences I've ever had. Food quality was bad, waitstaff were slow and inattentive. Do not know how these folks stay in business, must be the tourists that don't know any better.

If you want food and you want it fast, then this is the place for you! The staff is always friendly and the food fast! The food is average Mexican food. Tastes like any other regular good Mexican place. Decor is bright and cheery.

I used to go to this restaurant fairly frequently. I immediately stopped when one of the waiters called my friend, whom I was taking out for her birthday, a pig in Spanish. Unluckily for him, we both speak Spanish. At the encouragement of my fiancé,...More

This place will never disappoint. I can't imagine anyone having a problem with this place. First of all, they spent an incredibly sick amount of money on authentic art for the inside and outside of this establishment. It is absolutely beautiful to look around this...More
