I don't know where to begin! The strawberry margarita was perfect. Guacamole was perfect. Chicken tacos were perfect. And finishing it off were the sopapillas which were perfect. I only regret that we don't live here so I can come back!

First the Desperado Tacos are exemplary. The "crispy" shell appears to be made in house and is a welcome compliment to the tasty ingredients. The al Carbon beef was pedestrian at best. The salsa provided was bland. The service was well below par as we...More
