The service was very quick and the waiter was attentive. The food was very good, but they did bring my partner beef instead of the chicken he ordered.

Great restaurant. Delicious food. good service. Don’t understand why there was no guacamole. Was it because no one could/should have made it? Were there no avocados? Sam’s club right up the street. Maybe if there is another visit here ........

The food was just average and the prices were way too high. Family of four $70. That was the most expensive meal I have ever had at a Mexican restaurant. Our waitress was also terrible. She would say she would be back in a second...More
