Great salsa; big portions. It's all very good...not great, but very good. They are heavy on the cheese here. Very loud. Fast service. Make reservations as it's always crowded.

Such a great spot if you are looking for a fun, laid-back spot for lunch or dinner! The menu has such fresh, flavorful items and the prices are great- especially since the portions are very generous. The decor is awesome, staff is always very friendly and accommodating, and I am in love with their red sangria. The only thing that made me give then 4 stars instead of 5 is that the music is always too loud. It's great music that is very appropriate for the overall vibe of the place, but it is often difficult to hold conversations (while eating) over the loud, thumping music. Otherwise, no complaints- I've never had a bad experience here, always very consistent with quality and service!

We made a reservation and had to wait about 5 minutes for our table. The ladies greeting and waiting on us were very pretty and polite. Drink orders take, lots of Tequila to chose from. Appetizers were the Guacamole and quesadilla’s , and they were hot and arrived timely. The salsa with the chips was outstanding. Everyone at the table enjoyed.

Make note you will get a full plate of food. No one at our table could finish the burrito. I'm not a bean fan so I won't comment on those.

Service was excellent, nice appearance and tasting food, served HOT. Did not order desert.

Summary - I would go again. Great atmosphere, outdoor seating available, and a nice evening. I didn't think the food was all that expensive.

The bartender served us a drink in a glass with lipstick. When we asked for a new one, she did not ask why. When we told her it was because if already had someone else's lips on it, she shrugged it off and said "it happens all the time..new dishwasher." Yikes.

Beautiful, if noisy restaurant. I had the tacos, three to a plate, you can choose different flavors. Good food, great outdoor seating, helpful staff.
