I was looking forward to some authentic Mexican food but I was sorely disappointed. The food was very bland and the service was slow. When I asked for hot sauce, I was given generic hot sauce which had no real flavor.

I went here for the first time and the food was good. This is not your typical Mexican restaurant as the dishes have a twist (at least the ones we ordered for dinner). We checked in on Yelp to get a free guacamole, the guacamole...More

We had a business meal in here 2 nights ago. The tacos were nice and tasty, the place is really nice, full bar with multiple selection of tequilas. The menu was varied enough and the atmosphere really nice.

This restaurant is a scratch kitchen where everything is made fresh. I highly recommend it! The chips are thin and light. Salsa is just delicious. Guacamole was made at our table and had a light lime taste. One friend ordered steak tacos. She said the...More
