4 of us had dinner there last night and it was terrible. Starting with drinks we had to ask for a server. Some drinks were delivered, other were not. After again asking for a server, she said they would be there soon. Another 10 minutes and they were delivered but the ice had melted and they were warm and undrinkable.... More

We love this place. But I have to say we were very disappointed last night when the hostess said they couldn't find our reservation and was very rude to us. Not what we have typically experienced. It was too bad as we had friends visiting and they were taken aback by her attitude. A bad first impression can really color... More

I really enjoyed the ambiance and quality of the food. I eat no meat, fish, eggs or dairy and they had several selections I could choose from. Would definitely recommend it.

Was taken here by brother-in-law for a delicious dinner. We all had chicken burritos and they were great. Nothing to hot or to mild everything was done just right. The staff was very friendly and were able to suggest popular items and the restaurant specials.

Great dinner, great drinks and great service. My wife and I love to start our weekend with Mexican. We had great guacamole, I had chicken mole poblano and she had halibut on a bed of rice corn and poblano chiles. We finished our dinner with honey glazed crepes. A must visit.

Our new favorite Mexican restaurant. The best Tex-Mex food east of Texas. Great margaritas. Tender tasty meat in burrito and quesadilla. Even though restaurant was busy service was quick and efficient.
