Just okay

The food here was average at best. There are more better choices in this area close by. The restaurant itself was very clean, with a friendly staff, but the best rating I can give on the food is average. I spoke with someone else that had eaten there after we did and they had the same thoughts... read more

On New Years eve we ate here for the first and last time. The $11.00 made-at-the-table guac had two avocados, chopped onions & tomatoes...no lime juice, salt, cumin or cilantro. So,it was extremely bland and tasteless. My strawberry margarita had no strawberry taste at all [or strawberrys] and was terribly sour & bitter. My wife's mango margarita off their drink... More

Great lunch spot. It is especially nice to sit outside during warmer months. Good spot to go as a group.

I have been here for both Happy Hour and dinner. The margaritas are strong and delicious, but the food is average, at best. I have tried their combination plates, and nothing stood out. The high prices are not commensurate with the food quality. There are really no Mexican restaurants to "write home about" in this area, so unless you really... More

Selection seemed to be good. Lots of great tequila choices. Margaritas were also good. Valet was quite a wait, and the restaurant was so busy our waitress couldn't keep up. We ordered and appetizer and had to ask where it was. When we discovered it wouldn't come out until after our meal we cancelled it. The restaurant offered us a... More

Love the place especially in the beautiful settings of Park Meadows! If in Denver area, be sure to go visit this restaurant; try the phenomenal Agua Frescas with Watermelon or any of their fresh made Lemonades....Then the fajitas with fresh made Guacamole are a MUST!!!! This is a definite recommend restaurant to frequently go to!

"High end" Mexican joint. VERY expensive and not good. ! ! ! ( About as good asTaco Bell. ) Food is marginal.. The margaritas are awful .. yet still very, very pricey ! Avoid this place... The rent is high, so the food is stinky... Do NOT get ripped off !

This place has a great happy and has just amazing views from the rooftop patio. Very interesting flavors of margarita's and tequila's. Food is interesting - not your typical Mexican fare. I like the skillet pork carnitas.

Beware - if you are looking for the hot red and green sauce and usual spicy tomato Mexican food, you won't find it here. Instead, the dishes were more like American/European upscale gourmet foods. Some may like it, some may not. The Tequillas and Mexican beers, though, will be familiar. Tableside guacamole was very good - with large pieces of... More
