“blah”
Reviewed February 5, 2009

I went there about 6 months ago... we were there for a special occasion (we were a party of 6). The food took about an hour and a half to come (no joke). We ordered mushrooms in garlic as an appetizer and it took them 30 mins, and although they were super good, they had more grease on them than anything I've eaten in a long time. The tortillas came cold, and we only had 7 tortillas (less than 2 for everyone!) had to ask for more and it was greeted with a sigh. Absolutely hated it! Never, ever, going back. Would not recommend it to anyone.

The service was poor, the food or the tortillas very cold, I thought was the same in Monterrey but it different, and the prices were high.
I will not recommend.
