“Great Drinks, Crappy service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

i went there with 2 of my friends on a tuesday, it literaly took 20min for the server to greet us and that was because went we to the front and asked for him. Then drinks took forever n God knows how long the food took. The place was empty. The restaurant is pretty and the location is nice but that's about it.

“Do not go!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

I wrote an entire page worth on how crappy this place is.. I do not know what happened to my review, but trust me when I say.. I am a local and this was the worst experience I had at a restaurant in quite some time. Trust me, food is cheap and horrible, service is ridiculous.. (place was empty, yet I could not get a server for simple things like refills, water, silverware..etc.) This place won't last, just like the restaurant that was there before.

“Good drinks average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

We went with a party of 8 for dinner. The location is great and decor is modern and trendy (not typical of Mexican restaurant) with lively music. There is a DJ on site and if food and loud music don't work for you this is not your place.
The bar is large and the drinks are well prepared ,although a bit on the expensive side.
There was a variety of different appetizers and the main courses were of a customary modern southwest variety. Overall we found the food to be average at best as well as the service. Price ranges were between $12 - $25 for main courses.
