Nice venue and good location, staff were friendly and came here from being recommended by a colleague. Must admit the food although fresh just lacked flavour which is a shame for Mexican food. As titled I expected more, flour tortillas were not nice at all so tainted the fajitas taste too.

Visited in mid-afternoon on a beautiful day. Their huge windows open. We enjoyed the outdoors while sitting indoors in the AC and shade. Food is consistently good.

Incredibly polite and... More

Hot location, lots of pretty people. Prices are reasonable for what you get but this place is really not about the food. Paid $12 for a margarita in a fancy shaker....turned out to be a small glass full over ice plus a sip. Food was ok but skimpy. This a place to feel good about your social scene and where... More

This upscale restaurant is, I believe, a local chain. The food is always consistent and is worth the price. I had a combination plate with a cheese enchilada, empenada and bacon wrapped shrimp. My wife had the alambres (skewers) and our son the carne asada. All were very good. I have never had a bad meal there.

Had one of the best dinners ever. Fantastic salsa, seafood enchiladas, appetizer plate and churros. Great margaritas! Our server was pleasant and very attentive! Would certainly go back.

The decor and food is meant to be upscale. Only the decor hit the mark. I had seafood enchiladas and they were nothing special. The salsa for the chips lacked character while the beans and rice were satisfactory. It is much better to go to the basic Tex-Mex places for value and food taste.The service was good.

Thank slhokie
