What a find. Sunset strip can look a little iffy but this place is awesome. Great staff and who doesn't like flaming margheritas. Food was very good and reasonable.

We stopped here before the Cubs played the Dodgers in the 2017 playoffs. It was perfect. Close to the ballpark, right on Sunset. We’re from Chicago and Cubs fans and felt right at home. We got a table right away even though the place was...More

The food was fantastic, portions very large and service exceptional. Marguerita was both large in size and very strong. The place was buzzing with birthday parties and quiet diners.

We all loved our delicious lunches. I am a bit surprised that they so not have a lunch sized portion, but everything was delicious with great service. The guacamole was perfect.

We were not impressed. If I never eat here again it will be too soon. It didn't taste like traditional Mexican cuisine at all

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
