“Birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The waiter was wonderful and the food was the best. I had a great time. The parking was ok and we didn't have to wait for a table.

“Salsa and chips get 6 stars.... otherwise, sort of average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

I'll make this short and sweet.

The two blends of salsa are out of this world. And the chips are made warm and fresh and are plentiful. 6 stars.

From there I don't get what all the fuss is about. You get plenty of food but as with most Mexican restaurants, it's a big starchy gut buster and flavor wise nothing really blew away the 6 people we had at our table.

Drinks are really expensive too. Which is normal for "upscale" dining.

“Great Food !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

It was a bit noisey, but that was because it was PACKED. Be sure to make reservations ahead of time if you don't want to wait 45-60 min. Definitely get the guacamole !

“Nice Atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Love their Guacomole prepared tableside and their Queso laredo with warm chips. Also a nice salsa and warm chips is a nice start to all meals. Brisket tacos are very good and the Tacos with Mahi Mahi. Dessert would be Tres Leches with is delicious. Not the traditional mexican I am use to, but good.
