We had walked past this place a couple times and it was always full, so one night we decided to give it a try as a change from our seafood diet. While it appeared very busy, we were seated right away and our drink orders taken promptly. Service was attentive and prompt; we were near the kitchen, which she usually... More

Such a nice surprise to how delicious it was! Brisket tacos were amazing! Hubby got the ribeye special and said it was superb and fork tender. Pomegranate mojitis are delish!

The food is not good it sucks. The food is bland, it tastes like a dinner you get a Cracker Barrel. The place looks really nice but the food is AWFUL!!! The service is ok. Try another place 2 eat in the mall.

Not your typical Mexican restaurant! Upscale in both decor and food quality. At first glance we were a bit surprised by the prices. $14 for three tacos. But then we are them and OMG! Wonderful! Three brisket tacos, homemade corn tortillas. Awesome black beans and rice. Loved it. Already planning to return. How refreshing to not eat the same old... More

My wife and I visited on November 16th while in Destin for our anniversary. We first enjoyed the décor and lighting in the restaurant. Not to bright so has a romantic vibe. We were seated immediately and within a few minutes the waitress came to take our drink orders. Besides water I ordered the blood orange sangria and it was... More

Cheese queso was good, but the salsa was not what I'm used to. It was peppery smoky hot and was not a cold salsa, it was served got. I ordered the chicken chimmy! It was served with rice and squash. It should have had beans. The flavor was over powered by red peppers and the rice had a strong seasoned... More

I've heard so much of this place, and rants and raves from my fellow Destinites. I wasn't impressed. It's the same go-to Tex-Mex menu, but with a much larger price tag. They hand make guacamole at your table, but don't ask how much that one's going to cost you. As for the drinks, I'd say those were fantastic. It made... More

I had the fajita plate which was so good and my husbamd had the fajita tacos. Meat was so tender… the only complait is that the tortillas didnt... More

and go to Taco Bell three times. The food is about the same and the service will be better. I now understand why they are called "Wait" staff. Slow, inattentive service and the food was't any better. I had the steak nachos for $15 and they consisted of about 10 chips with cheese and a thin piece of flank steak... More
