Like the title says, don't waste your time, palate, or stomach. I do not usually give bad reviews. I normally believe in things like Thumper's father, "if you don't have something nice to say don't say anything at all." But this is a warning. It...More

My sister and I went here before a show at the Majestic. The chips and salsa were just OK. I would have preferred a fresher tasting salsa and saltier, crispier chips. Not going to complain too much though because they are complementary. We had a...More
