This place has a beautiful and well-stocked bar and the restaurant is huge! They need a lot of space because the place was"hopping" last night. Happy Hour was so fun with live music and fantastic Mexican Food. It's definitely a step up from our usual local Mexican restaurant so it is a bit more expensive but well with it. The food is really delicious. We had MahiMahi Tacos, Chicken Tacos and Empanadas.

Stopped by for a drink and food.. ate outside as it was a beautiful day and had a fun tine. Lots of really fancy margarita's and good chips/salsa. Staff was attentive and helpful picking out a good drink, and the food, was really good. Nice vibe and a fun afternoon.

I recently visited this place and met up with some girlfriends, we sat at the bar ordered drinks and food there. It was packed but they have a very nice bartender he was very quick to take our order for drinks and food which we loved our pineapple margaritas and I got the garlic shrimp which was very good
