I absolutely love this restaurant...the salsa is amazing and I love the champagne-Rita.....They have a wonderful outdoor eating area nestled in the mountain with live music when weather permits. Every entree I have ever ordered has been delicious.

The food here is great! It's an explosion of flavor in every bite. Try the pollo bohemios or camarones bohemios, also the salsa is really different and oh so good.

Excellent Latin cuisine! They have an awesome outdoor area out back and usually live music as well. Also check out their speakeasy themed bar upstairs.

I'm pretty sure they would have music on Thursday. It seems to be a mainstay there. I would consider asking them when you make your reservations however. Make sure to get a table on the back patio. It is a real treat :)
