Food was ready very fast and tasted good! I would have liked pico served with my burrito. Not many toppings but I'm sure I could have gotten them had I asked for them! Decor was very fun! Cool hangout.

First off: Staff were super good and sweet and on it. This is why they got two stars. The rest: This was where I went for old school tex mex. It was good! There was a smoking volcano and all the cheesy stuff I loved!...More

like Mexican but when its made in a city that prides itself on its cooking, it is taken to a next level! We enjoyed ourselves immensely! The guacamole starter is a must. The tacos no matter what you choose, you won't be dissapointed!

They serve nice big glass sized margaritas but the food was a bit disappointing. We love Mexican food but sadly this one tpdid not do it well. It was advertised on tourist brochures but we will not go back there again.More
