I was hoping to find it here. Unfortunately, this is just another decent but not great neighborhood restaurant. Service was good, atmosphere was nice, but the food is just OK, not great. Satisfying but not memorable. The search continues.

Group of 4 came here for dinner. Nice looking restaurant with bar area and tv's. Friendly and attentive service. Patron Margaritas went down smooth. Good selection of beverages. Chili verde plate was good, nothing out of this world, but good. Shrimp fajitas was very tasty....More

Food was fine, typical Mexican menu. Frozen margarita was good. Dined with five other people and the noise level was terrible. Could not hear without shouting. Parking is limited. Ok for dining, but not for meeting or socializing.

There were many large groups there, so your party of 8 shouldn't be a problem. Have no idea about air conditioning.....we were there in January.
