Excellent Mexican food and great service. Love their margaritas, especially with happy hour prices. Sunday night they have a mariachi band.

Have dined at the restaurant for the last 4 years. Food has always been outstanding and we have sampled every category on the menu. The wait can be long but it is worth it!

Visited here where from the outside doesn't look much and not sure if it's busy. Wow ... when inside what a buz! Fast effective service and good food. The bar scene was positive in this place also. Enjoyed it and recommend.
