The atmosphere creates a nice upscale vibe for Mexican. The food is very good. The salsa is not that great. Chips are fine. We all enjoyed our meals...three grilled chicken salads, fish tacos, beef burrito, beef nachos and kids chicken fingers!

Stopped by for an early dinner and enjoyed a delicious flatbread and classic house margarita (or three). Sitting at the bar was able to watch the bartender multitask her way through happy hour with style and grace. Quite impressive experience at an upscale Mexican restaurant.
