It's a nice, colorful restaurant with good Mexican food. The service is decent. Good place to meet up with friends or co-workers for food or drinks. They also make fresh guacamole right at your table. Families would like it too!

Good food good drinks, server was slow and not attentive. Another server actually got us more drinks before our server even came back. Food was excellent. We will be back.
