Nothing worse than lousy service. Saturday night around 6:30. 2nd floor. Waiter paid more attention to friends at another table then disappeared. No thank you. Fajitas good. Avoid the chile relleno. Margaritas marginal. Cafe el Tapatio 1,000 times better. Would not return.

Beware!!! The waiter initially overcharged - once the bill was corrected, I left a minimal tip. The following day I checked my Credit Card statement and he had added an additional eight dollars to the tip without my knowledge!!!
