So we went on a Friday night. They play live music. The singer was very good and entertaining. We had Antonio for our server. He was prompt and courteous. The food was excellent. I recommend the Mexican blue corn taco plate. It's the best.

We had a fabulous waiter and excellent food. It was a chance to sample some New Mexico specialities in addition to more standard tex-mex fare. Everything was tasty, and the staff paid close attention to the food allergies in our group. Highly recommend!
