Great Mexican food in a festive, loud environment. Clearly popular with the locals and the SMU college kids. Guacamole is delicious with big chunks of avocado throughout. Queso dip was a little disappointing, somewhat bland. Fish tacos, grilled salmon, enchiladas, steak burritos, margaritas all lived up to excellent expectations. It's busy place and they don't take reservations, so plan on a wait during the dinner rush. But you can head upstairs to the third floor bar and have a margarita while passing the time. Service on this very busy night was terrific, given all the restaurant patrons. Won't break the bank, either. Give it a try.

Loved the guacamole and chips. Tea is yummy. Had the salad with chicken fajita meat on top. Enough for a big eater! Very fresh food, great service. Can't complain!

Heard good things about this place. Our experience was not good. A full 40 minutes between ordering and receiving the order. The restaurant did not appear to be that busy......not a good time when you have 2 small children. Server (Frankie) appeared to be not overly organized. Overall, will not return

Was told to visit this place through a friend and in all truth, it was the worst meal I have had out in recent memory.
The food looked and tasted like it has been under a heat lamp for 5 hours. Neither of us finished our meal (not even close) and we were both ill for the rest of the evening from trying to choke down that slop.
Maybe I came at the wrong time (a Sunday evening) but I will never return.

THE BEST ritas on the planet, most awesome atmosphere and the prettiest people (women and men) in USA! NO JOKE. This place has everything: drinks, food, excellent service, location and it's FUN.
