Tiny place, gets hot and is packed on any night. Food was ok. It's not like Tex Mex places in US....in a good way. Big portions. However the atmosphere is more like a loud nightclub. Everyone shouting, loud music, etc... Ok if that's what you're expecting. Not an intimate setting. But overall good experience

The food is really nice, and the size of the dishes are huge. Ask the waiter for the size of your dish, if you are not very... More
