I saw a review that commented on the clean tables. Not surprised as very few of them were occupied during a busy dinner hour. We showed up at dinner hour in busy Miami expecting a wait but the place was mostly empty. That should have been out first clue. Lots of staff standing around, but no one waiting tables. After...

My first impression is from the very clean tables and nice porch seating option. The traffic noise is a bit loud on the porch, but otherwise enjoyed the service and the meal.

We ate here on Tuesday night for "Taco Tuesday". Tacos were good, but we were a little disappointed. The waiter was just so so, expected a little more friendly attitude from him.

Appetizers are ok but the food is bad. The best thing at the restaurant is the chips and salsa. The service is always bad and the place is always dirty. Im surprised they haven't closed down yet. If you have to order something get a burrito. Its ok.

Party of 6 for a Saturday night dinner. 4 adults and and 2 children. All 4 adult meals were wrong and service was slow considering the restaurant was half empty. 1 meal we asked for the cheese sauce on the side and when we got it, the chicken was covered in it. The server noticed and said something, but never... More

Our group arrived arrived close to closing time and the service was excellent. Our waiter David S. took very good care of us. Even though it was late in the evening, we didn't feel rushed during our meal. Plus we ordered the Gucamole Live which is prepared at your table and it was delicious! We were the only customers in...

After being seated and receiving menus the restaurant appeared dirty throughout, we order appetizer's, then lunch. The appetizer's were cold and the chicken tasted old and the guacamole was brown in color. The Wait staff was at another table laughing very loud and talking about putting resume in for other jobs. Our food quality was disgusting and their were 7... More

I went to this place after a long day around on my vacation with my family. This was our second time to dine in here. The server was very friendly. He offered me the best deal of the day. He helped us a lot. The place was a nice and clean. I love it. I will definitely come back here.
