Unique place, good food

Fun atmosphere, food was good, staff were friendly and pleasant. The restaurant used to be a jail and you can sit in an old cell!

Old jail converted into a restaurant. Rumors of hauntings (never any indication myself but I like it). Good food. Great lime-in-the-coconut margs and chips/salsa.

Thanks for the review! We are glad you enjoyed. While the spirit that allegedly roams our cells is believed to be mostly benevolent, were glad you haven't run in to him. He hates sharing his salsa. We look forward to seeing you again! More

Great drinks, great food, sat in the bar with another couple. Had apps. Queso cheese dip was awesome, all food was excellent. The most amazing part of our visit was Kevin our server, he was probably the best waiter I have ever experienced. He had the right balance of being attentive and not being intrusive. Kept us up to speed... More

About once or twice a year a friend or 2 convinces me to have a meal here, as I did last night. We waited a half hour for a table despite having a reservation. The food is always disappointing. The steak in my tacos was ice cold & gristly. The server seemed to be doing his best, but food and... More

Where else can you go to have dinner but leave on your own free will at the end of the night? This is a refurbished police station and jail re-purposed as a restaurant. The atmosphere is warm and the staff friendly. Margaritas are quite good. Dinner was plated nicely and good. Parking available on the street or the parking garage... More

This place was the Concord jail back in the day. The transition from jail to restaurant was beautifully done. The cells still have the doors and hardware.. You can get your own table in a cell... private and interesting to boot. The food was fresh and good. Warm chips for the salsa. My Shrimp tacos (lunch) were very good... A... More

We love mexican food! We got the nachos with the fresca, guac, and sour cream on the side. Could've used beans on top of the chips and more cheese, less lettuce, but still delicious.

Thanks for the review and glad you enjoyed. Sounds like you had the cowabunga nachos. They have been a star of our menu for over 20 years! Hope you can come back again soon. More

In an old jail, this restaurant is a warm and inviting place to meet up with friends after work. Not authentic mexican, but decent food. Great drinks, casual
