The rooftop is very cool, and the happy hour specials are great. Our waitress was quick and efficient. I loved the fact that we each got our own individual bowls of salsa for the homemade chips. The food was alright. Next time I will stick...More

This is pretty much American-style Mexican food, with a series of basic dishes on the menu. Nothing fancy. The fancy stuff appears in the drinks. I ordered the house margarita and was left wondering if they put any alcohol in it. The entrees are small,...More

3rd floor rooftop is great for evening or night but would not recommend in summer months in the daytime as the sun will blind you and it gets a little warm.
