“A great place to eat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

The decor makes for interesting conversation. The fajitas are great! They even have a Sunday brunch menu!

“Decent food, horrible service/management.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

I have dined here several times-- food always decent (not great), but on my most recent (and final) visit I decided to try the nachos with beans.. The beans tasted like dish soap, so I sent them back. The manager acted like we were trying to lie about the bad food and appeared to be offended when I told her to just take them back and remove from bill. She said they "tasted fine" to her (I guess she took a bite on her way back the kitchen?)..,.

This was not my first dance with the hateful management at this restaurant. I will not return.

“Not my cup of tea”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We had our Christmas party there last year, and it just wasn't that good. I feel this place is just trendy and that's why some people like to go there.

“Neat decor, inventive and diverse menu.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

This is a fun place. Your eyes never seem to rest as you look over the hippy-chic, self painted decor.

I had a chimichanga plate and enjoyed a business luncheon with six other colleagues. Everyone was pleased and the service was great.

Good value for your money. I'd go back.
