Ate here on a Sunday night, and had fajitas and a taco salad. All very well prepared and delicious; Our wait staff was excellent -- Javier was very helpful and attended to our every need, through our meal. We'll return here, often.

House margarita is lime green and not fresh tasting. Service very slow. Server very nice though. Table side guacamole is good. Fajita quesadilla VERY greasy. Bathrooms pretty nasty. I visited the one on Capitol Cr.
