The chips and salsa at the start of the meal were fantastic. There were large groups that came in so it made the service kind of slow. The food came and it was okay at best. Nothing special, but nothing terrible. The drinks were good...More

Great margaritas, wonderful place to enjoy friends, drinks and snacks. Food is traditional Mexican, OK. But go for the fun, the drinks & camaraderie! It's a fun atmosphere! Enjoy you friends.... you won't care about the food.
