We haven't been to the Toad in many years, so it wasn't quite the way we remember. It was same, but different. Near a lot of attractions. Worth the stop in to say hi.

Our guide recommended this place. The prickly pear margarita was good but the food was only so so. Servers were okay but not great. It was a stop because of the name but nothing else to really recommend it.
