I love that you can get interesting seafood dishes and not just traditional Mexican plates here. It is a bit pricier than just a Tex-Mex joint, but the atmosphere is nice and food was not only delicious, there was a lot of it. Get margaritas by the pitcher for your best economic bet.

$9.99 for an enchilada dinner. Cheese with Chili Con Carne rice and beans. Delicious. Make it bigger for a couple a bucks. Tilapia was also great.

Group of 10 sat at long table in bar area with a bright light overhead which could use a dimmer switch.

Had a short wait for a table even though we had a reservation. Was full by the time we left on Saturday night. Everyone... More

I love the food here. I especially love the "salsa infierno." The service sometimes is a little on the slow side, and the waiters are very hesitant to give me a big bowl of salsa, so they don't have to run back and forth, but all in all the restaurant has great Mexican food.

The service was slow from start to finish. It took a host 4 minutes to great us and our server 5 minutes. Once we were greeted and placed our drink order it then took them 6 minutes to bring our drinks and the order was incorrect. The food was just ok. I found the salsa bland and don't even waste...

Wonderful atmosphere, great food, great staff. We had the steak fajitas and the fish. From the appetizers to our main dishes. Just wow. Great food. A fresh take on mexican cuisine. The place looks great and the staff very attentive but left us to our privacy!. Great place to have a catered event in future. Will definitely come again and... More
