This is a better spot for Mexican than La Paloma or some others in the area, but it's inconsistent. Usually the daily specials are worth it. The rest of the menu is bland tasting and getting more and more expensive. It's a shame and I...More

Guacamole prepared tableside was yummy. Appetizer of nachos so good they should be considered an entree. Mole sauce rich with just the right amount of spices. Found table for 6 worked beautifully for our party. Waiter was superb.
