Not sure if it is the management or the staff but our bill got padded pretty good. Sucks because it is a fun place.

You know the food is good when the staff & cooks are from the old country. Great for us that know real mexican cuisines but if you are a local pease know they don't do traditional Dutch bland.

We love to eat here. The food is always good. Chips and salsa are excellent. Drinks are made very well. We go back because of this, but one never knows if service will be great or mediocre. Sometimes it will be packed and food comes out so fast and other times it's slow and food takes forever! We still enjoy it though. Language barrier can be an issue especially if you have any special requests. We just speak Spanish and it works for everyone! Kids like the practice, too!

This was a nice place to sit outside on the patio on a beautiful summer night. The drinks were good and the warm chips and salsa were delicious. The food wasn't very good at all and our server was very inattentive - he was too busy doing his night-time chores.

Let me start by saying the restaurant atmosphere is really cool and they have lots of seating. Be careful going on a weekend evening because they are packed. The chips and salsa and queso cheese sauce are really good, and the margaritas are excellent and downright loaded with alcohol. The hard part is that the waiters don't seem to know much English, so it's hard to communicate how you want something prepared. I've had some pretty good dishes there, but watch out for the steak dishes - they are incredibly salty. We had to send 2 meals back because of this, and they did take them off of our bill. They could definitely do better if they could speak a little more English and cut back on the salt a little - put a shaker on the table instead.
