ok I have tried it twice. The first time a few years ago was horrible food, service just as bad. This time, a friend said they really liked it... Food was horrible, service was worse! Just won't go back anymore. Like a glorified taco bell food, but I prefer taco bell. Too many Mexican food places to go enjoy.

Ok, nothing to write home about. Stay away from the tacos very poor. Very American Mexican food. Service was good and friendly. This is really a tourist spot in down town Palm Springs

Go here for the drinks and some chips, then go elsewhere for your meal. The atmosphere is fun and colorful, but the food doesn't live up to the environment. I fail to understand why this place is rated so highly.

We went with four friends for dinner. The service was fine, the prices were reasonable but the food (most important quality!) was just so-so. Not only that but I ordered the Tuesday special -- a lamb dish -- and found the portion was more appropriate for my three year old grandson! Much better choices in Palm Springs.

Often get aggravated by their rules.... must sit at bar for happy hour... not just in bar but AT bar.... really. Relax a little! Margaritas are good but not to die for and food good and again not to die for.... but just about everyone loves this place. Ignore the rules and attitude and you will like it also.

We only had shrimp appetizers and wine and found it to be expensive and not that great. The atmosphere at night is very nice, the service was good but I didn't care for the menu choices. I would not go back. Most of the people around us seemed to be enjoying their meals --- so I think we were the... More

We ate here twice in 2 days because it was so good! The coconut shrimp are a must! They serve chips and salsa to everyone. Very authentic Mexican food.

We stopped in without a reservation on a Saturday night and to our surprise got a great patio table. Fantastic server. The margaritas were excellent. They even made a "mild" version for the driver. The food was pretty good.

Wonderful service and food. Come here for fun festive people and food! Excellent time I had the tostada salad and it was fantastic. You must try the margaritas they are strong and delicious. I will definitely come back for more scrumptious meals and good times.
