Totally enjoyed this establishment! Margarita's were wonderful and their chips and salsa were home made! Food was wonderful and reasonably prices!

The place is adorable but the food is overpriced and below expectations. Service was good and pleasant. Not worthy of a return visit.

Food was great (chicken and steak fajitas). Served with lots of side items and was nice and hot. Plenty of food and the margaritas were great.

Beer is good, they had fun cocktail cups you could take home as a memory. That was cute. My 8-year-old loved the atmosphere. We went around halloween time, so they had lots of decorations. Food is average Mexican, not bad though.

Don't be fooled with the outside or decor, the food is good! We had enchalada's and tostada's. Both dinners were good and service was fast. We will be back!

Food was OK, nothing spectacular. Margaritas tasted like they were made from powdered drink mix - yuck. A little pricy for mexican food.

I had the tamales and enchiladas. My husband had tacos. We had a couple Sols in ice cold frosty mugs as well. All for $30. Service was friendly and helpful. Food was authentic. Fun atmosphere.
