Kitchen and staff incapable of handling even a small crowd. Patio was full and service was painfully slow. Drinks took forever to arrive, and food took even longer. Arrived cold and overdone.

Food and liquor priced competitively. Food is served in generous portions. Especially liked the outdoor patio that they have portable downdraft heaters for cool evenings.

The food is ample, with a diverse menu. Margaritas are ok, but I expected an excellent one, and was somewhat disappointed in the "off" taste. It was a Saturday night and they close at 10.

Started going to the round lake location years ago. We now go to libertyville because it's closer to our home. Not sure what the problem is but this is not a well run restaurant. Dirty, run down, drunks, order errors, long wait and uneven food...More

How is it that a Mexican restaurant can fail so miserably at their own holiday. I come here enough to know when the service is good. Tonight was horrible. The only way to get service was to ask. Our table was in the bar in...More
