We are here at happy hour. We are having quesadillas, toasts dad and guacamole w/chips. In other words "happy hour!" It's great. Fabulous food and drinks. The people are great as well as the food. We will come again!

We went for lunch Easter Sunday. Great atmosphere. Great service and the food was not only delicious but enough to make us skip dinner. Great Sangria and beer on top of that. Worth a visit when you are in Old Town Scottsdale.

Great varied menu and extensive drink list. Service was good. Reservations are a good idea during "spring training" or weekends.

We went for happy hour based on blurb on their website saying "best happy hour in Phoenix" (they are, however, in Scottsdale), and they earned their bragging rights as far as I am concerned. Tara was our server, and she was great - very forthcoming with menu infor and kept close eye on what we needed.The house margarita was excellent,... More

Dropped in to this joint before shopping in Old Town and had truly amazing margaritas. We tried the Prickly Pear and the Cucumber. Both were great - cucumber was my favorite.

Today was Taco a Tuesday and $2 Tecate beers. We had delicious guacamole and chips and a few shredded beef tacos and two Tecates for under $20. The patio outside is nice but a little warm at noon on a hot day. Shade later in the afternoon.

Thank Lynata
