Great food and drink. Order the table side guac. I also recommend the Cilantro Shrimp Salad but everything my party ordered was fantastic.

I thought the entrees were overpriced for this restaurant. I ordered a shrimp salad, which came with four small shrimp. Fellow diners raved over the nachos, but we had to remind our waiter a few times for the nachos. Service was a bit slow.

I have been waiting for my dinner for over an hour. They never put in the order. Hostesses didn't want to even seat us. Can't tell you how dinner is because I'm leaving.

We had the tamales on a stick. They were too spicy to eat. The we had the avocado and portobello fries. The mushrooms were pretty good. I was not impressed with the avocado.

It has a very nice patio area with heaters for the chilly times of year. I recommend dinner on the patio after the sun goes down and all the lights come on. Beautiful!!
Is the menu good for vegetarians? Things like veggie fajitas and veggie quesadilla burritos etc.

There are non meat items, but can't say if they use lard to fry etc. I'm sure if you call or email they will tell.
How dressy?
