There's no reason to dance around this... the food is awful. The service is average, or sometimes below average. This resto's best aspect is its location, which I'm sure is how it draws most business.

The food is really good here, but the tequila list steals the limelight. They have probably 50-60 tequila for offer at different price points and styles (reposado, anejo, etc) and also have tequila flights.

Service was fast and friendly. Guacamole was awesome and made table side. Main course was ok. Nothing to rave about.

We love Mexican food and have eaten here before and been very pleased. Our experience this weekend was mediocre at best. One of our favorite items is fresh guacamole prepared tableside - usually creamy and wonderful. This time it was very salty and overloaded with...More

Yes, in the form of grilled meats and veggies - they have steak, grilled chicken and grilled shrimp (I have tried the chicken and shrimp - quite good!) in salads as well as standalone platters.
