The food was fantastic, portions very large and service exceptional. Marguerita was both large in size and very strong. The place was buzzing with birthday parties and quiet diners.

We all loved our delicious lunches. I am a bit surprised that they so not have a lunch sized portion, but everything was delicious with great service. The guacamole was perfect.

We were not impressed. If I never eat here again it will be too soon. It didn't taste like traditional Mexican cuisine at all

The food was delicious, and the ambience is quintessential Mexican restaurant from the 60s, so it's a definite recommendation. The service? Not very attentive. And I know I shouldn't have ordered a Manhattan at a Mexican restaurant, but hey it's on the menu, but I...More

We made reservations for a group of 7 recently. Upon arrival they didn't have our reservation but were still able to seat us. We were seated right by the musicians. It is a fun atmosphere with good margaritas. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. It's a...More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
