The service was great but the food was overpriced and not what you'd expect. The home fries weren't fresh and the beans weren't hot.

Went for a girls night out. The drinks were yummy. Food was delicious and different (in a good way). The chocolate cake is to die for! And the service was excellent. Will definitely be going again!

The enchilada dip with wonton chips was great. Brisket enchiladas were good and a bit spicy so beware. Carmel gelato in a churro bowl was excellent. They had a live band which elevated the experience. Service was excellent. Want something a little different combine with...More

I came in for lunch, ironically for Taco Tuesday. On this day they had $2.00 tacos. The tacos were very nice. The pork tacos are much more flavorful than the chicken tacos, but both were good. A look at the menu indicates that this is...More

We dined at this restaurant on a Friday evening. There was live music, much like a long ago floor show. The restaurant is vibrant. The food is excellent and the service was exemplary. Recommendations are recommended, we arrived and the foyer was crowded with walk-ins....More
