It was around 11:45 and we were the only ones there for a while, so I would have expected better service. The waitress got our order wrong, and went back and forth on "how to fix it". Later, we wanted to see what they had...More

Don't let the bar appearance scare you off. THE FOOD IS AMAZING. We tried Boulevard tacos (steak) and rajas con crema (chicken), and a raspberry - mango margarita. All plates were cleaned! These dishes were both mild, the tacos had a hint of heat that...More

My husband and I love trying new places. I saw this restaurant listed for National Margarita Day. They have 30 different flavors. I tried their top shelf margarita and enchiladas verde. The flavor was delicious. My taste buds had a party.
