We had ceviche, steak fajitas and queso fundido with Chirizo at the bar. Christian the Bartender was very friendly. The food was very good!

We are a large family (16) - we decided to do an early dinner. The atmosphere is authentic, the food and drinks are delicious. The staff is very friendly and with several children with us - a pitcher of soda was also on the table.
