food was not good, they are way overpriced, service was poor, and unlike other mexican restaurants you have to pay for the chips and salsa as an appetizer. I should have taken the hint from how empty it seemed from the outside and gone anywhere else.

Menu and offerings reminded me more of the food restaurant in Mexico really serve. Rice & Beans covered with melted cheese not covering 1/2 your plate but rather black beans and rice served in separate bowls.Guacamole actually prepared at table and was served in a large stone bowl which was both visually appealing and very tasty. Tacos also what was... More

I've been here with friends to have dinner with friends. Some time ago this was a very good restaurant but today all has changed. First the menu is very poor. Second the food had nothing of Mexican and is became a fast junki food. The waiters were very kind and the place is still delicious but the food is not... More

My family ate here several times after they opened and always enjoyed it. Typical burros, tacos, fajitas, beans, rice and endless baskets of chips we, here in the US, know as Mexican/Tex-Mex food. We hadn't been in for a few months and decided to go again this evening, only to find out they had changed the menu:( They have changed... More

The restaurant is wonderful, atmosphere is excellent and the staff was great. That being said, I dropped $50 for a dinner for 2. We got 1 entree each and 2 margaritas. Seriously? That being said, my friend who had the 2 margaritas did get pretty slammed, so I guess the drinks pack.

Nice seafood options combined with mango and salsa. Always fresh, prepared with detail and great presentation. Their Sangria is also yummy!

I was excited about this restaurant due to the interesting menu and organic food description. Should clarify that the food is organic only in that it was alive and growing at some point. All of the food either came from a can or a bag. Spices? No, not even salt. I can only hope I dined on a night when... More

We've gone here many time and enjoyed it. They have changed the menu to be traditional "authentic" mexican. I showed up wanting a fajita fix myself and they're not even on the menu anymore. The server says they are no longer Tex-Mex... Im not cultural enough to realize fajitas aren't authentic. It was good. I had an enchilada dish. I... More

According to the server, this restaurant recently debuted a new menu. This was our first visit, so I don't know what the restaurant was like before, but tonight's visit was great. We started with blue chips and salsa. The chips were crisp and delicious. They come with mild and medium red salsa, but there is also a hot salsa verde... More
