Average but Amazing NEW Margaritas

Whether you've been here before or not, let me recommend you try it again. Before I go into the food, service, etc. let me first say that you're probably better off going earlier in the dinner cycle than later. Something about being at capacity challenges the staff to keep up a bit. Yesterday... read more

Went for happy hour. The margaritas are 2 for $5 and were good. They provide you with unlimited chips and salsa and a happy hour menu that has items for $2, $3, and $4. It was very good and i will return

The food was great but the service was slow and the restaurant wasn't full. Our waitress was too busy and was not very attentive. just go early and hurry up and wait.

There were quite a few tables needing to be cleared/cleaned on the porch upon our group of three arrival. We had a 10 wait for a table but noticed several 4-6 parties were still waiting 30 minutes with still empty/dirty tables. I didn't see a manager any where. The food was just so so.

food was edible, but the service was horrible, i don't think that the personnel has been trained at all on customer service, it give visitors a bad impression about Miami's.

It was empty at lunch time, maybe because it was black Friday. The food is not impressive, but not bad. Yo can compare it with Chillies
