The restaurant has complimentary valet parking across the street which is great because on street parking is almost impossible. The chicken wings with the mild chipotle sauce is the best i have ever had.

We made an unexpected stop on our travels and wanted margaritas and Mexican that was open late. Then found a hotel within walking distance. Couldn't have been more pleased. Good food, service and margaritas.
