Vast selection of margaritas to choose from. Food and service is excellent. Small outdoor seating if you like. Historic building with lots to read on the walls.

Like the atmosphere but the food is just so/so. Don't get the shredded beef burritos, it is NOT shredded beef but some type of meat strips make up of gristle. The drinks are good and salsa ok. Will not eat dinner there again.
