Great Find!

Kind of stuck back in a corner but what a beautiful building. The good was great and the flan yummy and not from a box! Would come again for sure!

Very fast and attentive service. I had the 3 item combination plate and it definitely was a case of my eyes being too big for my belly as I couldn't finish it. Food was nicely spiced and very tasty.

We likely to come here with large parties, they can accommodate big groups. I'm not too keen on their margaritas but their chicken nachos are awesome! The service is always pretty good. They have a really good menu, lots of things to choose from.

Met here for a business lunch, was impressed Food was delivered fast, fresh, and tasty. As it should be. And affordable. Huge interior seating, big bar area, and big outside patio, many options for sitting. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the breeze and were not interrupted at all in our meeting. Overall a great setting for a power... More

I've been to this place at least three times in the past. It seems to be a favorite among excecutives, as I am always invited as part of business dinners. The restaurant is big, very picturesque, service for groups is good. The waiters and the personnel overall is Mexican, which is good, being this a Mexican restaurant.

The restaurant is very close to my work. I've been there several times, mostly just drinks and some appetizers. Unfortunately I don't think they have the best Margaritas :) It's a good place to hang out with friend, chat and have salsa and chips :)

A reasonable Mexican restaurant. Not too heavy on chili powder. The service was good with frequent checks by the staff. It gets very busy around noon. Arrive early.
