A wonderful place for a special dinner! The selection isn’t just Tex-Mex, but also has steaks & seafood. We splurged & had dessert & it was also delicious! The service was impeccable too! No rushing, you could enjoy your dinner. I’ll be back!

We are sorry about how you feel. This was absolutely not our intent. We actually made a lot of concessions for your group that you may not even know about since you didn't make the reservation. It's especially disappointing for us in light of that....More

Reservation are a must. Pretty and uppy atmosphere. Good salsa. Beef fajitas were delicious and tender. Not fatty but full of flavor. Sadly tortillas are NOT homemade. The cheesecake was topped with carmel and is fabulous and yummy.More

This was the absolute best Mexican food I have ever had! The squash enchiladas were so good! Save room for dessert too and you won't be disappointed! The bread pudding topped with rich ice cream melted in my mouth! The service was impeccable!

Yes, we do, we just don't post it because it is always evolving and changing with vintages and wineries. I would be happy to email it to you if you would like.

Hi Barbara, I am sorry - we don't have a Happy Hour. We did attempt it at one point but the guests' reception of it wasn't as enthusiastic as we had hoped. Now, we just keep our prices reasonable throughout the day.
