Margaritas and chips THIS time but I can't wait to enjoy dinner at this great restaurant. The bartender makes a fantastic classic margarita and the salsa has the chipotle smoky flavor to it. They also served salsa verde which was terrific.

Really enjoyed sitting outside, very good appetizers and drinks. Very good service. My Uncle and I really didn't like our meals, very dry and tasteless. The rest of the family enjoyed their meals. My wife loved her dish.

I was positively surprised by the many vegetarian options on the menu. I had really good vegetarian tacos and also enjoyed some very delicious margarita. Seems like the kitchen had pretty high ambitions, without being too pretentious. Really liked the relaxed atmosphere.
