Have been stopping here on the way to the airport from the island for the last several months.
My wife informs me tonight that the Don Julio margaritas are $16.00 each. While the food is above average, it’s simply not worth that for a good margarita.

Fajita for two-$27.99, quantity and quality were good, a little pricy. Less than 15 minutes after placing order, the plate already on the table, taste was ok. Overall is good experience.

The cucumber margarita is killer. Out of this world yummy. The food never disappoints. The atmosphere is loud. Get ready to have a great time. It is pricey. The food and drinks are worth the price.

Lived here ten years and this has always been our favorite Mexican restaurant. A step above most, yet still very casual and affordable. Always busy no matter what time of day. That says a lot right there. Never had anything I didn't like. Best salsa and chips. Great margaritas( and they don't spare the alcohol) Don't drink too many.
