I enjoy the food here and the happy hour beer prices are great. Nice outdoor seating. Only negative is the whiff of sewer that you smell on entering the restaurant. Can turn one off if you have to wait to be seated. If they take you right in or to their outside seating, the smell is quickly forgotten. :)

We've been here several times since it opened. The service has always been good and we like the atmosphere. The issue has been inconsistent food quality. Sometimes it's excellent, other times we've been less than satisfied. Our last visit was with 5 adults. Three of us loved our meals, two did not.

My wife & I keep giving this place a try and it is such a hit or miss. As we entered tonight the host gave us a long dissertation on how the kitchen is behind or some nonsense. She said we could be seated soon but could only get chips till they caught up. Also we would have to wait... More

For classy Mexican food dining, this is the place to go. Many Maricopa couples come here on their anniversary.

Went here not knowing much about actual Mexican food. The server happily answered every question we had, and he knew everything about the menu. He gave us suggestions based on the most common item others choose, as well as what his favorite things on the menu were. Our food was delicious, very good margaritas and since I don't think our...

Nice patio seating and friendly wait staff. Food was expensive for the portion size and quality. They also overcharged us on one of our entrees.
