Great spot for lunch and Margaritas. Evenings are good too but loads of Lounge Lizards. Basic Mexican combination plates, specialty dishes and salads. Chips & Salsa are always fresh. Service is pretty good considering how busy the restaurant gets.

Great place with pretty good food. Very noisy.....not an intimate spot for a quiet night of romance. Pricey.
