My wife and I go here when we visit Newburyport. The margaritas are tasty and the food is surprisingly good. It's convenient to all the shops and I've never had a long wait to be seated (outside seating may have a wait).

Salsa, nachos, burittos were all rather bland and nothing special. We have tried it three different times and walk away dissapointed. Maybe the beverages make it better for others(?!)...but it doesn't do it for us.

My boyfriend and I came here for the very first time (we're from out of state), the food choices were not plentiful, and although it was decent food, it wasn't the best Mexican food ever. But the vibe, super nice staff and décor would bring...More
