Stopped here for dinner tonight. The food was good but not the best I have ever had. I would probably return if I was in the area. The service was prompt and friendly.

Stayed at hotel next to El Columpio so we just walked over. Thank goodness we did. Food was wonderful and we had a pitcher of margaritas. If ever by this way again we will stop in. They also had an outdoor seating on the roof.
