Ignored by two staff at meter greeter station when I arrived. When someone did notice me they seemed confused by me being on my own. Waitress (think she was called Emily) was good. Had fish tacos, which was not much fish and lots of white...More

We used to go here weekly and loved their steak tacos, then they had closed down to remodel and revise their menu; I can honestly say this is now the worst Mexican food I have ever had. I will never go again.

We keep trying over the years to have a positive experience at this restaurant but it is very inconsistent! We got a damp, cold cloth napkin and no water brought after 3 asks! Sometimes we get a wonderful "California Burrito" filled with shredded pork and...More
