The thing this restaurant has going for it is the outdoor seating. Food is ok but nothing special. Typical Ameri-Mex food. There's a bar, and that's most likely very helpful to this restaurant, as people do like their alcohol. Service is pretty good.

Stopped by for lunch. It is standard Mexican fare that is pretty good. Nothing blow away. The margaritas were average and expensive. They use a typical mix like they all do. You won't go wrong here but I would not go out of my way to come back.

Great place to enjoy a margarita and some good Mexican food on the patio. The service is good and so is the atmosphere. If you get in the mood for Mexican food then here is the place to be.

Their food was just okay. We did enjoy our lunch on their patio which is dog friendly. There were quite a few flies out there though =\ Maybe the patio needed to be hosed off or the tables wiped down better?

We had a fabulous weekday lunch on the patio. There were lots of shaded tables and a nice fountain. The chile relleno was fresh and tasty. The mole was also excellent.

My wife and I are here almost every week. Usually it is just the two of us but we have brought family, friends, and colleagues here too. It is quite casual from the setting to the plates but it is welcoming and the food is good. Their beans and rice are organic and they use fresh local ingredients as do... More
