I was lured into this joint by the live music and no cover charge. Once inside i made my way to the bar and ordered a frozen margarita that was bland and lacked any kind of flavor. I asked the bartender about a few of the menu items but he seemed unwilling to give me any kind of feedback, so i decided to pass on food. This place seemed interesting at first, but after a bad margarita and a total lack of interest from the staff it became apparent why this place was practically empty. It seems there is a identity crisis here, is it a bar ? a restaurant ? a live music venue ? The live music was about the only thing i enjoyed during my brief visit to this establishment.

I can't believe all the reviews about how excellent this place was. We were leared in by the Sunday $4 margaritas. Was close to dinner time so we decided to eat because of the reviews. The enchiladas were awful..shells dried out and cheese not even melted...rice did not have any flavor. We did not even eat it. The salsa was HOT and the chips were HARD. The margaritas were small with lots of ice. We paid our tab and left with feeling like we had just thrown $40 away. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Guacamole is a rip - shredded lettuce in a sherbet glass with a small dab of guacamole on top . Fish is frozen from china. Margaritas are watery .
