I live in the city and probably go here once per month. Happy hour in the bar is a lot of fun. Many different flavors of margaritas. A few times I've seen them put out a free little buffet of chicken and rice, chicken wings, and taquitos. As the evening goes on, the place gets packed! Downstairs, the restaurant is quite kitschy but in a fun way. Their salsa is terrific. Chimichangas and chicken fajitas are excellent.
