“Will return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

Fresh and fabulous! Homemade for sure. We are spoiled in the Twin Cities with a health conscious menu at many inner city restaurants. When we travel we look for places that are not chains. Places with a flavor of the area we are visiting. This sits with a view of the London Bridge, but that is not what will bring you back it is the cooking. Brava to the chef!

“Nom nom nom”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here for lunch on a day trip to LHC from Las Vegas. We sat on the patio and had drinks and lunch. Chips & salsa arrived as we were being seated. We waited longer for our server to arrive than we did for our food to arrive once we ordered. I had cheese enchiladas with refried beans as well as an ultimate margarita. Yum to everything. My enchilada was one of the best I've had. It was agood lunh and the drink was also and certainly no skimping on the alcohol! I would visit again if I have the opportunity to return to LHC.

This was nothing special - the salsa was not very good but the service was great. We were there for $1 taco night so our dinner was nto expensive. I doubt I would return.

Lovely restaurant with great servers. Only draw back is that they don't tell you about the special offers which are available on that day, so do your research before you go.

“OK upscale Mexican food but overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

I think they have attempted to make a silk purse out of a sows ear. It tastes like Americanized Mexican food. Upscale atmosphere next to the Heat Hotel. Great view of the parking lot.
