So, you walk in it’s pretty dark and oddly enough it reminds you of a dance club with mannikins on swings at the bar and pictures everywhere. You get seated with a view of the patio and past that the parking lot. Once you get...More

Minus one star as three tacos looked like kids tacos. Probably a 4-5 inch diameter tortilla. There's only so much you can fit on that small of a taco. So that's why I knocked off one star. Don't come to this place starving. With that...More

Decor is stellar, service is so so. Food is honestly meh. It's not terrible, but it hardly justifies the price.
