Had a reservation after the game for 12. Surprisingly the service was very good considering it was very busy after thein win against Wisconsin. Margaritas were very good. Everyone liked there meals. Chips and salsa were very tasty. Reasonably priced.

My husband and I went here for lunch and were extremely disappointed. Everything was so expensive. EVERYTHING.... We were seated outside during a not too busy afternoon. We ordered water to drink because ten bucks for a lunch marguerita was just CRAZY! It took FOREVER...More
