“Fun times, great value!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Super cool bar area with SUPER CHEAP margarita prices!!! We went during happy hour and my friend and I each had 2 jumbo margaritas and the total bill was only $11 (because those jumbo margaritas are only $2.75 during happy hour) Talk about awesome! :) We were served some of the best chips and salsa I've had in a while, even though we were just there for drinks we had to sample some because we heard they were really good. I was surprised to see any bad reviews for this place because everything seemed awesome to me. I will be back and I will be bringing some more friends for a great time and for dinner next time, too.

“Bad, worse, terrible, is this a joke?”
Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

Waited for 10 mins to even be acknowledged. Waited another 20 mins to get our drinks, which were prepared wrong. Waited to order and waited for 40 mins for our good also prepared wrong. Waitstaff was not friendly or apologetic. Don't even waste your time, energy or money,

“Just Ok”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Service was pretty slow. We were there at 5:00 on a Friday nite. Chips and salsa are excellent.
Fish tacos, just ok. Chimichanga - very good. Seafood Enchilada - very good. We had to go looking for our bill because our waitress was nowhere to be found. Margaritas - the happy hour prices cannot be beat for house Margs, however, it wasnt that good. Tasted very much like a mix, and i dont mind mix. It was very blah. Waitress did not offer dessert, and all in all was not much of a waitress. We dont need to go back anytime soon. Service is the key!!

“Great value, exciting ambiance.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Always good food and great specials. The wait is usually short and worth it. Enchiladas and quesidillas to die for. Bring your appetite.

“Arrriba!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Great staff, food is great and authentic. Small restaurant, but very big and accommodating. I have been there with a large group and the margaritas by the pitcher are wonderful!
