Pollo Relleno is amazing! (Pic below) Stuffed with yumminess and cooked to tender perfection! What a lunch feast! My brisket quesadilla was phenomenal and more than enough for a lunch portion for me even though it was a tapas. I've never had salsa so good,...More

The worst experience ever. Eight people at the bar on Saturday at 1 PM. The tap beer was flat and poured two inches below the rim. The shot of 1800 silver was poured from the coconut flavored bottle (not what was ordered) and it took...More

I can't tell you how many times I've had drinks with friends on the large patio out front. But I can tell you that you don't go back over and over if the atmosphere isn't good or the food isn't good.
