If you know anything about authentic Mexican, Latin American, Tex-Mex, or Cal-Mex food, then forget all that. Enjoy it for what it is: traditional americanized "mexican" food. I mean, there's nothing that nachos and a margarita can't fix, right?

We stop in a couple times a year. This attempt we discovered that they charge for parking. Place mostly empty. Had a beer and left. Hope the parking business is better than their food or they will be gone soon.

Great patio, fun bar scene, food is pretty good. Located on the corner of Cooper and Young. Parking is behind the restaurant and you may have to pay but the restaurant validates it if you eat there.
