“Poor service for average food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012 via mobile

We will not be coming back. On a recommendation we tried this restaurant last week - middle of the week dinner. The decor and atmosphere were fine but the service was painfully slow. Both salsas were good, but served in remarkably tiny bowls. While waiting half an hour for our food we definitely needed a refill and had to prompt our waiter multiple times before he would bring it. Same with drink refills. The beef tacos were very dry, and the cheesy shrimp ones were actually too cheesy (something I have never said before) - but just not what I was expecting. We did have our toddler with us and when she got fussy at the end of the evening I had to resort to waiting cash over my head after the waiter ignored us for at least 10 minutes after our plates had been cleared. It was very frustrating given that while busy the restaurant was not full. We were sitting right across from the cash register, so it's not like we were tucked in a forgotten corner, we were just ignored.

“for healthy food seeker”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

appealing decor, clean, unclustered. friendly staff, the same since opening a few years ago.
simple menu with fresh ingredients. My favorite place also for Mojito and Margarita.
This restaurant should please everyone, including children and hard of hearing.
The price is honest. You do not leave feeling "full", but satisfied and knowing you ingested plain healthy food.
