Great food, amazing bar with a huge selection of Tequila. We have dropped in 2 times, waited about 30 minutes for a table. It's worth the wait, food has lot's of flavour. I had such a great time the 2nd time I bought a T-shirt.

My hiking group went here last week after a 5.5 mile hike. Half the group ate on the patio (sun and shade), the rest of us ate inside. After the hike we were ready for the A/C. Wide variety of menu choices. I had the chicken taco combo. A very filling meal. Good food and service.

enjoyed outdoor seating in the shade. service was pleasant and readily available. The food was not hot or very spicy but flavorful. I personaly prefer spicier but my wife is more sensitive to spices and thi as a good choice for a large group with varied tastes.

Ordered two shrimp and one fish taco last night. Taco part wasn't bad, but the shrimp and fish was extremely lacking. Will not go back.

We were five couples and had some cocktails and food. The food was excellent with a pretty wide choice of dishes. We all said it was a good value and would go back again.

Had a very fun meal at this restaurant. The owner was walking around and very friendly to his customers. The margaritas were wonderful, and they had a tequila tasting going on, and that seemed to be a hit! There were many Mexican food options on the menu. I don't think that you could go wrong with anything. A really good... More
