We went there on a weeknight, early so no music. But the food was excellent and lots of food for the price. Wife and i left full! Atmosphere is great for a local place and service was excellent.

Ignore the exterior challenged neighborhood murals. What is inside will delight. The décor is busy with painted walls and ceilings offering snippets of the proprietors experiences friends and many others; Baubles are hanging every where. Lots of tables but space is not generous. Sound level is concert level loud so if you are on a first date, forget dialoguing. Right... More

Kind of spooky from the outside and real cozy on the inside. This is what a Mexican restaurant is all about. Great food, great selections, large drinks, lots of freebees at a reasonable price.

Nice to see what they have done with the place after so many years, however, food was bland and the flavor was salt, no seasoning. Meatball soup, what kind of meat is that?

We have been here several times. I have to say that last nights outing here was VERY hectic!! The place was packed. They were bringing in tables and chairs from the back and were seating more people.

Seven of us were visiting the area from out of state and stopped by for lunch. Wow! The service was quick, accurate and friendly. All seven of us loved our food, not one critical word. The extras were appreciated. My shrimp and avocado appetizer was fresh and delicious. The sangria and my mixed drink were fantastic. And such a fun... More

Excellent Mexican, salsa is one of the best, and everything is authentic. I often go for lunch because you get the same meal for less $$. The sangria is also some of the best. Order a número cinco combination and you are good to go!
