    This was our second visit to this restaurant. The first time was okay, but we really enjoyed sitting at the bar on this visit. The food was delicious and the margaritas were wonderful. We will definitely be going back.

    The service was great. We had made reservations beforehand and did not have to wait. We did not have to wait long for food after our orders were taken. They were very attentive to us. For our tastes, the food was a little on the salty side, but very tasty. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

    Our server that night was extremely helpful and accommodating. I couldn’t decide between two plates and he offered to make half of both dishes for me. Still can’t decide which one was better because they were both great, between the beef and brisket enchiladas. Drinks are fantastic here. We’ve been here many times before but wanted to write it a review this time.

    Expensive tacos with tasteless fish. Enchiladas were average. Surprise that the quality of the food does not meet the prices

    Prices are ridiculous, service was terrible, and food is mediocre. We only came because we didn’t want to wait in line at the other Tex-mex restaurant down the street, Big mistake! Price is almost double than the competitor and nowhere near as good. Service was also horrible and ended up walking out because food took way too long and we didn’t even get to order drinks because server never came to check on us and take our drink order. $115 for fajitas for 2 is ridiculous and not worth the cost, you can dine at a high end Mexican restaurant in downtown/midtown for those prices.

    Father’s Day was a fail here. Online it was advertisement for full brunch, it was only a limited breakfast menu that ended at 11am. Brunch is usually just beginning at 11am. I felt terrible bringing mu husband to a restaurant that said they had “Father’s Day Brunch” and it was simply Mexican breakfast.

    We were seated outside. We were told we would be out of the weather but still quite windy and the highway noise was extremely loud. Our server seemed to lack customer service skills. We requested a special margarita but they didn’t have the special liquor. Instead of asking what our next choice would be she just delivered a house margarita. The table was not set but she delivered the settings and just put in a pile on the table for us to set ourselves. The entrees were not up to par. Their specialty green rice was not the normal quality. There were 4 of us and none of us thought the service or food were up to par.

    I was excited to go because I had a friend recommend it to us. We ordered one large plate to share, sm queso and 1 margarita. The food came out cold so we sent it back. The second plate came out the same way. The waiter asked if we wanted him to have them remake it again but we declined. It was getting late and we were tired. The waiter was very nice and they did comp 17 of our meal but I still ended up paying almost $40. We will not return.
