We dropped in here for a drink while wailing for our table at the Jumbo in Dempsy. Was fine with good cocktails. We didnt eat here though.

“Good cocktails”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We came here with a few friends for some after dinner drinks. Cocktails were good and they even had a small band playing some dance tunes which was good fun.

“Great ambience, average food”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Make a reservation if its anywhere near the weekend else make your peace with a waiting list. But there's plenty to do while you're waiting. The bubbly barman is sure to visit you as a tactic to have u hooked on the drinks before you get to the menu. As the name suggests, don't miss the margaritas. The classic or the fruity, the traditional or the ones with a modern twist. Try me all! I had a mango margarita for the first time in my life and am hooked! Depends on your company, try a seat by the bar, that's where all the action is. The food is average- our burrito was sloppy and gooey. The fajitas were fine though cumbersome to make after pitchers of margaritas down. Also they charge for jalapeños?! Which true blue Mexican restaurant does that?! It's meant to be a natural condiment to the meal! The nachos were fine, a bit less salty maybe to cater to the heavy inflow of expat palettes. Overall will go back for the ambience and the fab fab drinks.

“Chewy chicken”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

My husband and I tried this restaurant on a Saturday night for a good meal and margaritas afterwards. I asked for chicken fajitas. The chicken was so chewy it was impossible to eat it! It also had no taste, no seasonings. The funny part is that the restaurant manager passed by us and noticed I was not eating, so he asked me why. I told him that the meat was extremely hard to chew on and that it also was not seasoned as it should be with Mexican food, but he kept trying to convince me that that was just my impression and that the meat was perfect! The situation was so surreal that I was in complete disbelief. Try La Salsa. The food there is much better, though not yet to Mexican or Texan standards.
