Ok, let's get this straight. Everyone else's food looked lovely. We went looking for a light meal, but the menu del dia really only suits if your aged between 5 and 8. Having eaten 'real' Mexican food, I hope I can confidently say this is not. It aspires to being Tex-mex. Trust me, there are better places nearby which will... More

My wife and i ordered a salad (for her) and I ordered a stone bowl with salsa verde in it. The bowll is hot and they place strips of chicken, beef, some cacti veggie... More
