We got to the restaurant about 8. It was 9:45 before we got our food (except chips) and when we got it, it was luke warm which it should have been hot. We had two rounds of chips befoe they even took our drink order.

In town for a college graduation and the graduates picked this place; the best thing was the guacamole and it was a 2 out of 5, our party of 9 was the only people in the restaurant for about 20 minutes and the service was horrible, the waiter kept disappearing, he took two peoples drink order and forgot the rest...

Out of town visitors who picked this place at random. Good prices, 2 for 1 drink specials all day, good food, too. The place was noisy from one group that was celebrating but our oversized margaritas helped to blunt that.

Walking distance from Marriott Courtyard. Delicious chicken and beef fajitas and California burrito. They serve decent 2 for 1 margaritas. We had the sweetest waiter. He was attentive and we enjoyed our conversations with him. Time we'll spent.

(Warning: young adult visitors from Tampa Bay in for the weekend) You know… party Mexican Restaurants. Often with large spaces, heavily decorated with colorful Mexican motifs, plenty of alcohol, emphasis on a party/group atmosphere instead of doing justice to the food… this is one of those places. And this isn’t a very good sign when it looks like the building... More

This Restaurant is within walking distance of the Hotel Marriott Courtyard. We had a very attentive server. My husbands Enchiladas weren't very hot, but they heated them up promptly. The flan I had for dessert, was disappointing . Not what I was used to from other places.

I walked in from a nearby hotel on a Tuesday night. Nothing to crazy happening, but they were busy. No hostess, so I sat at the bar, which had weird seating (some seats hidden behind pillars). It took me 14 minutes to get service. I thought it was just me, but after I placed my order another man sat down.... More

The worst service ever. They refuse to take owner ship of the service. Would not apologize for the fly in drink. Everything was not their problem. The food was not good at all. You may want to try your luck somewhere else.

We decided to eat here while on business. I walked in and the restaurant is way cool and the music also so I was excited to sit down and have a meal. I ordered a chicken chimichanga that was served to me on a plate with nothing else and was the size of a fruit roll up. No rice and... More
