I recently ordered the tico tacos and was extremely disappointed the fact that there was practically no meat in them. I will say that they had a very good venue and the plates of all the guests surrounding me all look great.

I think I've said it all with the title, the flavor is great, the price is right and the amount of food is gigantic. I'm dying to go again. Good wine selection also. I love it.
