Planned a birthday dinner with 14 family members. Made reservation the day before. Got to restaurant and was told I did not make a reservation. I said I did and was told "well it isn't on here so..." Very rude hostess. Asked for a large table and was told they didn't do that. Always have in the past and a... More

For a pricey restaurant you would expect better service. I didn't get the name of the waiter. He was the tall guy w a goofy look like the guy on mad magazine. He didn't refill our waters. He didn't check up on us until he wanted to know who gets the check. After we paid we stayed talking catching up... More

I used to come here in the 90's and loved it. I am pleased to say it is still great with the best fajitas and quesadillas. The 'swirl' which is frozen Sangria and frozen margarita mixed together is a 'must drink' . Nice service too! $120 for three with a few drinks is excellent value. Uncle Julio we still love... More

Was there with a large group quick service great food and I wish one of us had a birthday because they went overboard when someone had one, everybody it the place would sing. Food was great and whatever you needed they were there to take care of you. Will go back

Large party but the waiter handled it fast and efficient. The chicken was very fresh and tasty in my chicken fajitas and the tortillas were yummy. The Chocolate Piñata was very cool - we had a chocolate syrup Piñata tray and a berry syrup Piñata tray

I ordered the pan seared spicy tuna tacos. The tuna was ice cold- clearly pan seared sometime in the last 3 days and then held in cold holding until ready for use. I removed the tuna from the tacos it was so gross. Spicy? Not at all. Well, unless you consider mayonnaise spicy. Which was the better part of the... More

We took my daughter, her husband and our grandson here for a late lunch, this last week. Everything was we tried was good the tamales could have used a little more stuffing and less masa. Everything was good, just not great except for the tamales which were not very good at all. Service was a little off as well had... More

My wife had been wanting to go here because of the "Chocolate Pinata". We decided to go for her birthday. The atmosphere was nice and comfortable. Staff was not rude but didn't go out of the way to make us feel welcome. Adult drinks are very expensive and I would question if they even had any alcohol. My mojito was... More
