Where to start? Location? Okay. On Monroe St. not far from city center. Food? Delicious!! Generous! Tasty. This has to be one of the best Mexican restaurants we've experienced. It starts with salsa and corn tortilla chips. I like my salsa a bit milder, but...More

Food was delicious and reasonably priced. The 2 for 1 margaritas are a great deal at happy hour and are huge! Service was excellent as well. Highly recommend.

Okay, here I sit, waiting for a second drink that will never come. Sat here on my phone for 20 minutes waiting for our checks while our waiter stood against the wall staring at us. Food was tasty, service not good.

Mexican food with not a lot of options and to me it was very price they do not have aguas frescas only sweet tea and soft drinks so you don't really have a lot of options.

While the drinks are generous and well priced, food is not enticing. They do not make their tortillas in house and the pollo al mole tasted disgraceful. Avoid, unless you are a college student.

Best chips and salsa in town. Food is fresh and hot and always good. Never disappointed. Burritos, quesadillas, and enchiladas are my go to items. Margaritas are delish!

Not sure Kayla. I've only been there for food. Didn't pay attention to Happy Hour. Have to give them a call.
