We've eaten here every time we're in the area-this was the third visit. Very good food, very time. Big dining area, so they can handle a crowd. Service and food prep are very fast.

2:30 pm Came in for late lunch and margaritas. Slow service, not friendly, stale chips, mediocre salsa and guacamole, food was so so. Definitely better Mexican restaurants in CU. Recommend el toro Urbana. Much better food and service.

This was a very busy restaurant. Food was distinctly average and service only ok. Some vegetarian choices. The beer margarita was a high point.
