Dustin, our server, genuine service (rare) - should train others. The food was as perfect, and tasty. Probably top 5 places in Tampa. The sound system needs an update - nbd. Carb-friendly. I'm going there again.

What a great first impression. My family and I are new to the area and found this restaurant online. It just so happened that it was Valentine's Day. While we were driving through traffic we became concerned with parking, likely we found a spot at...More

Great food choices for lunch and dinner, primarily tex-mex. Been here for brunch as well. It tends to be busy, so be ready to wait. Great music, drink specials, HUGE margaritas. Definitely a place to try out if you are in the Tampa area.

The service and food were perfect. The trio dip and chips were great. The Southwest Quesadilla was delicious. Worth the wait.

I wasn’t a huge fan of the nachos or the churros but they were still decent. The nachos might not have had a fair chance because we put all the toppings on the side so that we could share. The tacos were delicious though. We...More

There is a Mexican/Southwest style to the food. Please ask your server if there is garlic in the dishes you want to select. I do not believe there was any garlic in the nachos or fish tacos. The server can ask the chef for... More
