Loved it!

Great location right in Times Square on the beach- most extensive cocktail and drink menu!!! Best piña colada I've ever had! Enjoy the great music while you enjoy a drink or dinner.

We had the Tango, steak burrito and it was very good with lots of meat and a variety of fillings. We also sampled their cocktails-they have an extensive offering. Try their Bahama Mama!

Nachos weren't good. Steak sandwich had uncooked onions. Margarita was good & singer was good! He interacted with audience but sang country western music, not what u expect from Mexican restaurant.
