This is a typical South Florida Mexican restaurant. The chips and salsa are made in-house and are very addicting. The margaritas are made well. The food is yummy!

The service was good. The food was mediocre. The margaritas were better than the food. Chips and guacamole were fine. The prices are reasonable. Nothing was incredible but neither was it horrible. If you're in the area then it's a decent place to visit.

An excellent tradition!!! Their happy hour at the bar is a plus! A Margarita & meal for under $20! Margaritas are excellent! They gave us a free sample of their homemade tacos! Definitely the best! Quesadillas were just OK. Great atmosphere & service!
