“Eh...”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Came for dinner after watching an amazing show of Silence the Musical next door and was starved. The menu was a bit too limited for us :( Waiter brought chips and salsa out and all I can say is that their salsa tastes exactly like the Cholula brand, so we hoped the food would trump the cheap tasting salsa. It was okay, we both decided that drive thru food would have been better. The drinks were pricey and had very little alcohol in it. Waiter was nice enough to give us a discount since no music or mariachis were playing during our dinner.

“Very Nice Atmosphere, looking forward to another visit”
Reviewed February 15, 2011

I really liked this place, first- The food was very good and authentic tasting. Everything from the Salsa to the entree was delicious. The menu is a just 1 page so there are limited options but everything our party of four ordered got "yummy noises". Second- The entertainment was top notch, we all enjoyed the mariachi show. 3rd-The dancing after the show was good. It was a mixed crowd of older and younger guests having fun, not like an 18 and over club with kids running around like crazy people. The only downside is that at midnight, the restaurant brings in a local band to close out the evening. I don't even know what kind of music it was rock/ska/emo, but they emptied the place of any guests that went there for an evening of Mexican style entertainment. They really didnt fit with the groove that was going on. In any case if you attend the last show plan on leaving at midnight if you are going for the Mexican Restaurant theme.
