I have yet to eat in the downstairs restaurant because the patio upstairs is the place to be especially in the spring and fall. The tortas, tacos, enchiladas, tamales, fajitas are all fantastic. This is not your typical Mexican or Southwestern restaurant. They have found...More

Very disappointing brunch. The poached eggs on the Crab Benedict were raw. They should never have been served. The steak and eggs consisted of cold, cut up pieces of fajita. No tortillas were served or offered. I also ordered the featured tamale—barbacoa. The masa encasing...More
