Stayed at Hilton around the corner. Walked right in for early dinner at 515. Service quick, menu lots of choices. Margaritas excellent. Food very fresh. Guacamole extra fresh. Excellent value for downtown SLC.

Delish margaritas and yummy dinner. This hit the spot for us. Gluten free options as well. We had a large group (15+ I think) & our server handled our table fabulously. Definitely recommend.

Food is fabulous! Good size portions. Awesome margaritas! Nice atmosphere (a tad noisy on busy meal times). Attentive service. Reasonably priced. Visited twice.

The margaritas were fabulous... The carne asada was pretty fatty and the chips were just okay. The next time I go, it will be to just chill on the patio with a few margaritas! The tortillas were fabulous too.

Had high hopes that this would be a fun evening with a group of convention friends, but the waiter made us feel like we were a bother being there. The place was very crowded with groups, so maybe that was the reason he wasn't patient,...More

The food was pretty good, I love Mole dishes and they had quite a selection. The chicken was a little dry/hard but the mole sauce was pretty good. My husband had a burrito which was delicious. The margaritas are okay, I would get the Cadillac...More
