The food was good & there was plenty, did not leave hungry. Margarita was a little watery like it had been sitting awhile, not much flavor. The waiter was polite & efficient.

Enjoyed dinner with family. The food was very good, but not excellent. The atmosphere was authentic Mexican and enjoyable, but noisy. The service was good given that the restaurant was filled to capacity.. The prices are reasonable.
