Casual, colorful atmosphere allows for fun dining experience. The fish taco plate was nicely prepared and the enchiladas looked great, too. Nice variety of margaritas and other festive drinks. Great service.

I am by no means an expert on what would be considered 'authentic', I just know that I love 'mexican' food and this place was tops! The decor was great, the chips and salsa at the table are also great, and the food was perfectly...More
