Loved the atmosphere! Each section is its own unique picturesque Mexicana treat. I sat in the section where one felt they were sitting outside a cantana overlooking a courtyard. I scanned over other areas that looked like a marketplace, a festival scene was another. Food was great but not the hottest served. Tasty, plenty of sauces to add the heat... More

We have eaten here soooo many times we must take it for granite. Our last time, a couple from out of town sat next to us. They actually asked the waiter if they could take a tour of the restaurant.

Ate here while on business. Very nice atmosphere. Service was very good. Chips were a little on the stale tasting. Didn't take long to receive our order.

The staff was very friendly. The service was a little off but our waitress may have had too many tables. The food was great and the decor is very authentic. They have the best margaritas.
