My colleague and I stopped here for dinner when we got into town. We had margaritas with chili. Different, yet quite tasty. She had the fish tacos and I had the carnitas. So much food! I would say you can share either easily. Chips and salsa were good. Our waiter was great and I would come back on my next... More

Basically I agree with previous reviewers -- this restaurant has really great atmosphere (nice seating area outside, in cool location), very much a bar-restaurant, plentiful free tortilla chips/salsa. Lots of good cheer. The food was good -- sort of a mildly upscale take on Mexican food, not too expensive. But as others point out: this city has fantastic Mexican food,... More

The menu offers an interesting twist on traditional Mexican cuisine. Best of all for an additional $1 you can have soup or salad. The same to supersize their margaritas. Drinks are very reasonably priced and food servings are generous. The menu doesn't quite accurately describe the dishes. We had a citrus pomegranate salad that was more of a fajitas on... More

Not one unhappy plate. And with drink specials, sign me up for any given Monday! The fish burrito was a surprise. I'm pretty sure it has rice and pickled cabbage inside. The quac was delish, but beware that the menu does not note jalepeno's in the recipe. We brought our 5-year-old who is a guac lover, but didn't do spice.... More

The bar service was exceptional, the food delicious, too! I had the pulled Cuban pork in banana wrap, cousin had the salmon. Both huge portions, cooked to perfection. Nothing left on our plates. Inside dining, outside, too. We'll be back soon.

Not everybody loves this corn mold delicacy famous in New Mexico. This restaurant in LA had it! I ordered the chilaquiles verde and loved it! The servers were great and more so considering all the kids they were dealing with. We had a big group. Top notch in all ways.

If you are looking for a fun environment, with a service oriented staff and you crave mexican food, this place never lets you down. Have been there several times and they are consistently very good with their offerings. Good options on the menu to select from and the value of the portion sizes to the price is spot on.
