Great Selection of Tequila

The food is good and have eaten many times there but their selection of Tequila is the really reason I go there. Love trying new tequila every time I go there

Went to this place with my friend for his birthday. Great service and guacamole, they make it front of you with many added ingredients. I love my soups, a hearty remedy for my cold. It was fresh and very, very tasty. My friend had a salmon and loved it too. Also, their salsa was one of the best ones I... More

We were staying in Santana Row for 2 weeks and decided to check this place out on our last night. The chips were stale, salsa options were strange, and food was average to below average. What made it worse was the price. They must have to charge higher prices to pay their Santana Row rent. I don't mind paying more... More

What a disaster!!! Waited forever for water then ordered drinks and appetizer and it took forever. But hey they brought us more stale chips though. I can see not getting everything right but I was hoping for something. Even one thing ok I could live with. see not

Nice atmosphere, small but complete menu. Tableside Guacamole where the avocados are already in the bowl, just add your favorites and spices. Good choices of Tequila and drinks

I ate here with a large group (9 people) during a week night. Service was a bit slow but that could have been the result of our party size. They bring out chips with three different types of salsas and I found all of them to be delicious. The menu selections were a bit limited compared to what I am... More

Great authentic food with excellent sidewalk atmosphere. Great service. Had fajitas (steak and chicken) which were plenty for two. Food is very solid with plain wholesome taste. Corn tortillas. Good experience.

Took my 3 sons (22, 20, 17) to brunch here after visiting with my middle one at his internship. We enjoyed it and we can be picky about Mexican (which it is not-we're from Texas) food in California.

As the title says, this dining experience can only be described as average - not bad, but not great either. It's, well...perfectly average...which is not bad. Upon entering, the hostess and the manage were not very friendly. They were...average. We definitely did not feel that we were welcomed inside, even thought there were plenty of other places that we could... More
