The restaurant wasn't crowded, which was nice. The server was enthusiastic and efficient. The food was just average, though. Not too many veggie options, and everything was covered in cheese. Not bad, just not amazing.

I loved how close it was to our hotel, HEAT. The service was great and the food was also fulfilling. It was right on the lake so there was a great view to enjoy while eating

When we were walking up to the restaurant we were greeted by the odor of chips overf ried in oil. It was not pleasant. Having had a great experience at their location in Sedona we decided to continue on in. It was not the fun loving vibrant atmosphere we were expecting and the food was just average. The service was ok. We skipped dessert as we deciding eating and running was our best option.

Stopped by for a late evening snack after a business meeting. We only had an appetizer and a drink but found the ambiance and service very good. We sat outside in view of the iconic London Bridge. When in town, we would come back to look at the full menu!

Used to be my favorite especially on taco nite. Good margaritas, & happy hour. But sometimes service is great and other times no. They also need to not sit you down to a table without silverware, napkins, salt etc. Then they take your drink order and you have to ask for waiter for water or you may or may not get it. One time someone at my table asked for quacamole dip and the guy forgot, by that time we causght him we had eaten all the chips! So he had to bring more chips. The worst thing is one time my husband's taco had plastic wrapping in the cheese! Next time he ordered a chicken taco and something weird, gross was in it, next we waited til the waiter finally came back and he ordered a bean taco. Now he won't go back, two times something was in the taco!!! The kitchen looks pretty nasty too, when you walk by it. I think they need adult management not too young of people running it. Also, if you go in the Winter, some of their heaters don't work and you'll be cold. Be careful it's a hit or miss and watch what's in your taco.
