The service was good. The music was excellent. I came on jam night and sang and played bass on a few tunes. The band was fun and entertaining. We only tried the appetizers which were tasty. I like Mexican beer and they have plenty of that. I give this place a 10. Check it out.

This bar is a wreck, although has some ambiance but the margarita I had the last time I was there was terrible. Couldn't drink it. The "jam band" has lost its flavor after losing some members.
