4 of us went while attending a convention. Had a good meal, each of us ordered something different, and all were pleased. Our waiter was quite attentive. Prices were fair.

The food here was so good! This place was kind of a hole-in-the-wall so I wasn't sure what to expect, but the food really blew me away. The atmosphere in here is really good too.

Stopped in after a concert at the Rosemont Theater. Don't fall into this trap. Just, don't. $22 for the worst Mexican entree I've *ever* had. Oh, but you get a house salad included drowned in your favorite dressing. $2.50 for pico de gallo was mostly chopped onion. If the "premium" margarita was hand built, it was the worst I've ever...

This place is located just off the main road on a side street. If you come during the lunch or dinner rush, parking may be an issue. The place itself is pretty big with good amount of seating. The food was really good and good sized portions. There is no kids menu but they were pretty accommodating when we ordered... More

We enjoyed well poured tequila cocktails, while starting with excellent guacamole and chips. For entrees we had chills renos and chicken enchiladas, coupled with excellent black bean soup. While the selections and service from Jesus were good, it was overshadowed by the large family gatherings with children and excessive noise. I would give it another shot, but suggest you try...

I have to be honest here: the service was great and the margaritas were great, however the food didn't taste like much. I feel like the bad tomato sauce ruined everything. I'm was inside my burrito and also on my side dish. So it all tastes the same and boring.

Delayed flight. Killing time( because the outlet mall was a screamin deal let down....). Nice bar, exceptional service and generous margarita's. No tap beers, but bottled beer served with icy cold glasses.
