The service is outstanding with welcoming host and friendly servers. Food is always good with outstanding chips and salsa and chili verde. Ground beef burritos are the best. Family friendly but often uncomfortably noisy. Trending toward a bar with a rowdy crowd Thur - Sat.

We went for a birthday luncheon and The was barely ok. I think it’s only saving grace is the Ducky Deathstar drink that keeps Utah’s flocking there because it’s def not the food.

This place has great Mexican food and the drinks come in a MASSIVE goblet that will for sure get you drunk. Don’t drink? Get their frosty drink then and it still comes in the same glass and tastes amazing.

My new favorite place to go! Such good drinks and food. Waiters are kind and fast service. I can’t believe Ive never heard of this place before. It’s the best Mexican restaurant around, and wish they had more locations around!!

Being a Brit I'm not that familiar with Mexican food so can't comment on authenticity but certainly can comment on what a fun place this is to eat. Recommended as a must by locals. A party of 10 of us got together and between us...More
