It is loud and extremely casual, however, the service was reasonable (and appropriately paced for a place without walls and old picnic furniture) and the prices were even better. The chips were good, and the salsa was great. Only negative was the bottled beer (Negro...More

Not Tex Mex but Ga Mex. Not bad but average Mexican dishes retooled for Americans. Margaritas were tasty but not particularly powerful. Nice outdoor seating option on a nice day. Worth going if you're in the area but not a destination restaurant.
