Awesome service! Very accommodating for large groups. Food came out quickly and the margaritas were massive. Large portions sizes. Would definitely come back if I was in town. If you like Mexican food at all you need to come here!

From Atlanta. I have been spoiled with great authentic Mexican. This restaurant was equally as good. Mitch was our bartender/server. Absolute great experience. He was more than hospitable. As former restaurant employees, and high maintenance, he was great and made the food that much better. Thanks guys
