The chicken was sooooo moist! Everything we had was excellent. I didn't care much for my margarita but my partner was happy with it.

First and last time at this place. Ordered Filet Minion rare, came out well done. My guest ordered the same thing, his was even more cooked than mine. The steak itself was about 1/2 inch thick. Vegetables were undercooked. so no not going back.
