Had lunch there. Good combo options and good margaritas. Service was good. GF was a bit difficult due to the language barrier.

Gathered for a pre-party. Margaritas were excellent, very smooth. I had enchiladas, wife had the chicken qesedillas and raved about them. The enchiladas were good but I thought the meal lacked enough seasoning. Same goes for the salsa just wasn't enough kick to it for...More
