We are from TX and always skeptical of eating Mexican food when traveling, but this was really good. The salsas were great and ranged in spiciness and flavor. The burritos, tostadas and pork tacos were definitely enjoyed. The drinks were the best part. Had a blueberry margarita (special) that was just amazing. Would eat here again. For sure.

This place was amazing! We had an early reservation which allowed us to get our food fast and hot! All the food options looked amazing and the basil margarita was delicious! Worth eating at least once, if not more, during a visit!

The food that I had was good and there were a lot of choices on the menu. The service was good and friendly. The restaurant was very clean and the food came to us quickly.

Amazing fish tacos, so good! The basil Margherita was one of the best cocktails I've ever had. So light and refreshing. The only reason this isn't a five is because the server took my plate before I was done.

Our family ate here on our vacation, and the food was amazing. Our server seemed to be assigned two different areas to cover, and as a result, our service seemed to suffer just a bit. Overall though, she was nice, helpful, and knowledgable, and our experience was very good.

What a great place to get Mexican food! Service was pleasant, restaurant was clean, and there was a great variety of choices. Accommodations for what you wanted were made on orders. Not too salty and great flavors.

Once again, it's about the fish tacos! It's absolutely my favorite Mexican dish and I always order it when available. These did not disappoint. Serving of three tacos, beans and rice was quite hearty. Hubby ordered a salad so (in my generosity) I shared one taco with him. Nice beers on tap also!

We stopped in after a wonderful day of wine tasting and we were not disappointed! They seated us in the courtyard which is really nice. Service was speedy and the food was delicious. We started with the chips and trio of sauces. The poblano sauce was amazing and I would have drank it if I could have! My group had... More
