I ate here last night. I had the fajitas: very flavorful and colorful presentation. The music was lively and fun. And i found the outside very relaxing and perfect for people watching. The service was courteous and prompt and they came right away. 5 stars !

We attempted to eat here tonight, a Monday night. Drinks took at least 10 minutes to arrive. We had already finished our chips & salsa (really just chunks of salsa ingredients, yuck!) before getting drinks. We asked for more chips, but they never arrived. They don't have queso. We ordered nachos as our appetizer. After a long wait, they were... More

Except for the non-existent service, food was delicious and the setting of the cafe gives you a feel like you are in Mexico... Place was constantly with a steady flow of customers; staffing should increase to accommodate the full cafe. We had to ask several times for someone to take our orders. The food took awhile to arrive then we... More

Unique dishes and authentic Mexican food. Just not on top of their service, forgot my wife's Margarita and labored for another beer. Like I said the food was good we had a lobster and shrimp taco salad that was good, but my son's nacho's were pretty generic but I guess they were Old Town Nacho's, just didn't send me. However,...

Just an average Mexican restaurant. The service was fine. Food okay. The menu offered quite a bit of options but the food wasn't anything special. Restaurant is fine for a quick bite when your hungry.

Fantastic patio with huge blowing fans, and great conch fritters! The burrito was pretty great too, and a pitcher of Sangria tops it all off. Great casual setting with fantastic mexican eats!
