this place is buzzing all the time, literally. In the evenings, especially on the weekends, they do have great music. The tequilas are excellent, and this is a great place to hang out on a lazy afternoon. Or, if you're crazing about tequilas and dancing.

A great place on Santana Row to enjoy an outdoor cocktail and Mexican entrees or appetizers. The drink menu has a great variety of margaritas and other specialty drinks. The watermelon margarita is refreshing.

Nestled amongst large green shade trees in the middle of Santana Row. Great atmosphere with average food. We were a little disappointed that we were not told by our server it was happy hour during our visit.

The menu is limited but the food is good. The margaritas are exquisite! We tried the chile mango one and it was delicious. The raspberry chambord was sweet and yummy! Would come back just for the drinks.

No reservations accepted. If you are able to grab a table, make sure your friends arrive around the same time. Because once they hit capacity, your friends may have to wait outside until someone leaves before they can come in. Can get very loud if...More
