The ambiance is quite tacky but it's all in good fun. The portions are large but the quality just not that convicing. I would suggest going there on your birthday, since you will get to eat for free

The food and atmosphere here is wonderful. We went with Mexican friends, and they totally approved of the eats - except that the tortillas were made with the wrong ingredient. Another time, I went with two friends for lunch. It really stunk that they totally...More
