A friend suggested this for our lunch. I am so glad she did. Food excellent. The sangrias made the bill a bit higher than a usual lunch but all good.

Private cozy bar, great margaritas, friendly staff and southwest comfort food. We love grabbing a seat at the bar for a quick bite to eat after work and a tasty margarita. Complimentary chips and salsa with a nice bite to it.
