“Music ruins the place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

We have been here a couple of times, the food is, reasonable priced, cocktails pretty good and service friendly, all ruined by awful music and I mean really awful in your face too loud music with monitors everywhere playing the video clip. Not music that suits the style of the restaurant, Tex-Mex, but various rap artists. There is only this music, no variation, hard to talk over. Absolutely ruined the place. We like the food but wild horses wouldn't drag me back!

“Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

It looked amazing from the outside as we were walking past earlier in the day. At night it did not disappoint. Parking was also easy and close to the restaurant. Good selection on the menu, good food, great atmosphere and great service. would definitely eat there again.

“Chef Mike”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Seemed like a buzzing place so gave it a try, wouldn't go back.

Got told we had to sit inside because all the seats outside were reserved - as we left over half the seats outside were still empty.

All of our food felt and tasted microwaved, all of it. Right down to the wings.
Given the speed it arrived after ordering, I'm almost positive it was.

Staff we're friendly and the cocktails we're nice. Wouldn't recommend.
