The food here was fine, even good. However, the staff here was extremely and uniformly rude, with the exception of the manager. We walked in at 7pm last Monday and there were two young female hostesses. When we asked if there was a wait, we were told yes. Upon seeing empty seats at the bar, my husband asked if we... More

Great vibe and delicious Mexican favorites in this "shark themed" environment (ala Jaws)! Guacamole was authenticly deliciously with home made chips. Good service and plenty of space for large groups.take the family and enjoy!

A long time staple has seemed to have lost their way. While the Wings are still awesome and the Beer selection solid and cold. I have to say that all the rest - not so good. The grilled chicken strips which were stone cold in the fajitas obviously are multi purposed right from the bag in a bunch of their... More

Happened in to have lunch. The service was slow and the food was mediocre. They have a very good bar & drink menu but be prepared to pay well over what you would expect.

The food is wonderful and budget friendly. The margarita selection is huge! Seating is cramped but the outside is pleasant.

My hubby and I were walking around the area and decided to get a late-night snack and drinks. We ordered The Trifecta with Chips (guacamole, queso cheese, and fresh salsa) and it was SO GOOD!!! The chips were house-made, the salsa (a little more like pico de gallo but I loved that) was so fresh and delicious, and the guacamole... More

I'm surprised this place received such good reviews. The food is not authentic Mexican or at least not the night we were there. The food didn't have much taste and was loaded with fat. My kids order tenders and fries and they looked burnt. I will say the staff on Circuit Ave was very nice and gave my boys sharks.... More

It may look a little run down, but that is part of its charm. Right in the heart of everything on Circuit Ave. It's not a big place, so it's generally crowded. Your best bet is a seat at the bar. Mexican and seafood favorites. Numerous Tequilla options and cocktails.

This is the bar scene for the young. Lots of TV's for sports and the best wings in town. They have things like salsa, tortilla chips by the basket. Have only gone for drinks an nibbles and they were good.
