“Wow one of the best tex mex ”
Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

Great food not touristy. Wonderful service and ambiance. We ordered several appetizers and two main courses. One was the flautas excellent , the other fajitas they where ok not the best. Margaritas have been one of the best we've had. Price extremely reasonable. Worth the visit by far

Everything about the restaurant was fantastic, and our server, Filipe was exceptional. Not a cheap evening, but worth every penny!

“Yuuuumy- go here!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

Amazing Mexican food. Not your original tex mex. salsa was like a puréed pico with homemade chips. We had the diablitos- yummy but spicy, soup, echidnas verde and the surf n turf - everything was yummy. Service was great, heather was friendly and had great recommendations. Margaritas were good, nothing to write home about but food was!!

“A Mexican dining experiance”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The menu is not TEXMEX but authentic Mexican cuisine. They were very accomodating with a special request for my meal. They create an excellent tamales platter just for me!! This is a great place to take out of town guests.
