We had a great meal and what made it even better was the awesome attentive service (Danielle - hostess, Sarah - waitress, Joe - busboy). Have the mojito margarita - great drink.

We go here every year for a great lunch... Almost every time we split the nachos supreme... Seasoned ground beef and chicken with all the right stuff... Cool atmosphere downtown as well.

Excellent service, GREAT food, and the 'scenery' can't be beat! We ordered the fajitas, pistek diablo, enchiladas, surf and turf fajitas, we had no complaints, it was all good. The guacomole was excellent!

We were told to visit the Cantina for the margaritas. They were very good.

Atmosphere was good, service was good, presentation of meals was excellent. We were just disappointed with the flavor. We are from Chicago and we are somewhat spoiled with great Mexican meals in a variety of places. This just didn't meet our expectations.

I thought it was a little on the expensive side as well. I had the chicken and vegetable skewers. 4 of them for around $12. The chicken was about 4 bites worth. It tasted fine, but just not the amount I would expect for that price...even for a resort.

It's not the best place I've been, but it's not the worst.

Stopped in here for cerveza and salsa. Scored well on both! Cold cerveza. Tried a new one for me. Pacifico. Definitely liked it. Sat at the bar. Small hole in the wall. Try it!
Great selection of brews.
