Overrated Mexican food. Overpriced too. Family of 4 for breakfast was over $60 and it wasn't that good. Service needs improvement. They have a couple of tvs and a small bar. I'd recommend it as a last resort.

Lots of great Mexican food, excellent flan for desert and much fun. We had such a large (30-40)group, we had most of the restaurant to our group. We've been here before and gets better each time.
