Have not loved the food, but their guacamole is AMAZING, as are the margaritas. Stop by the bar for a jalapeno margarita and some fresh made guac. Great place to hang out pre-dinner. Good patio too!

Really good atmosphere and the fresh guacamole made at your table is great. Some of the prices might be a little high for the simpler stuff but its all well presented and I've never had anything I didn't like
