“AWFUL Stay Away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We ordered fish tacos and the fish lollipops. The tacos were small and contained cabbage and some bland sauce. If there was fish in there we couldn't find it. The fish lollipop was nothing but a fried grease on a stick. Absolutely inedible. And again, if there was some sort of fish in there it was not apparent. We sent them back after discecting one and examining it for some edible morsel. The waitress was apologetic and stated that they were using a new chef that evening, but nothing was done to adjust the bill. The house Margarita was ok, but didn't seem to have much booze in it. All in all we left hungry and disappoined. The experience set us back $30 which would have been better spent on a six pack and taco bell. We won't go back.

“Horrible House Margaritas ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

Stopped in durning the art walk. It was pretty quite inside and that should have been a sign. Tried one of their house special margaritas and it was probably one of the worst margaritas I've ever had. They filled a small plastic cup full of ice and then proceeded to pour this yellow premade mixture into it. It was very sour. We expected more from a Mexican restaurant. Bartender was so unfriendly we decided not to order any food which I think was a good call. Later that night talking to friends who ordered the nachos they said they were horrible. Too many other good places in town to spend your money.

“Fish lollipops and margaritas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

Friday night dinner for two couples. The fish lollipops were 3 or 4 skewers of light cornmeal battered filets for ~$9. I was amazed at how large the portion was, like a traditional fish fry but bigger. The filets melted like butta...amazing creamy cilantro dipping sauce that I couldn't get enough.

“The prices are very expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

I paid for a bottle of beer (12 fl oz) and a "Margarita" u$s 15.75
In that place nothing justify elevated level prices.
