We waited over 45 for our food. When it arrived, it was at best mediocre. I had to send back the chicken. Maybe the holiday season got the best of them, but this place was a disappointment.

We were here for a rehearsal dinner and after party. We came back the next morning for breakfast. Nice atmosphere, good service, good food and large selection. Prices were really good as well.

Several family members myself included breakfast, lunched and had dinner at the restaurant. The menu was extensive and the waitstaff helpful and courteous even when we asked for separate checks in small groupings.

Typical mexican fare, but served by friendly waiters and a lovely authentic outdoor patio. Good chips, great margaritas and a straight up old school big-shell tostada. Fun!
