Cannot pre-book, has to get a number at arrival and wait, sometimes up to an hour. Good menu, lamb shank was very good, as well as their specialty, pig's cheeks.

My wife & I had the elite appetizer which was good. She had the buffalo enchiladas which she enjoyed. I had the lamb shank which was good, but a touch over salted. Good margaritas too.

You can check in and wait while they go off and do something. One person has to stay. It might be more than 30 minutes, though...
