Everything about this place was fantastic, from the table side guacamole to the vacation sized margaritas. Located on the water, the indoor and outdoor seating was great. We enjoyed all of our food and the mariachi band just made our evening even better.

The food was great! They had a live mariachi band walking around, stopping at tables to serenade the customers. The staff were very pleasant. Definitely would recommend eating here.

Nice meal with very good service. No reservation needed. They went out of their way to give us good service and enjoyed the strolling mariachi singers.

We had a nice table... More

The food and service was excellent! The quality and number of quality tequilas is also top notch. Ask for the dishes in the pots that come to the table fajita style - great steak and chicken combo I highly recommend!

Easily walked to from most anywhere in Hotel Zone. Live music (Mariachi) and excellent service. Food is good, but not outstanding. Great atmosphere.

The food was average we ate at better places. The service was good until it was time to pay and then we lost our waiter for a good 20 minutes.
