“Love the Tuna Tostada!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2010

This is a must visit restaurant anytime I visit Cville. I love the tuna tostada topped off with their homemade mango "Wait a minute" sauce. Rebecca is by far my favorite waitress there. Always service with a smile, great conversation, and quick to keep my margaritas coming. :)

“Great food and margaritas, always packed, and typically loud”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2010

The food can best be described as "tex-mex", but that's a loose description. The magarita's are among the best in town, and the food is always good. I've only been in there for dinner, but it's always loud and always very crowded. Expect to wait for a seat, but rarely more than 20-30 minutes. The food is worth the wait though!

“Hello, Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2009

Incredible mushroom burritos and not-too-sweet margaritas. Get there early if you want a seat!

“Great restaurant if you can find it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2009

Our friends took us here for dinner. You'd probably just walk past it if you didn't know where to look. Food was excellent, service was excellent. They did have a bar and loud music going which was a bit annoying, but we were there late for dinner so I can't complain too much. I guess "Tex Mex" best describes the food & decor, but it's not anything like a chain Tex Mex. Interesting food choices, everyone enjoyed their meals and the drinks were good.

“I love this place but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2009

it's always packed. Great menu, great drinks but I've waited forever just to get a seat and I've walked away before. Y'all need to move into a bigger hole in the wall than that:)
