We had four in our party. Chips were average at best, but the basket was small and not even filled to the top. Refills on chips cost $1, refills on the small salsa dish is also a $1 per refill. Felt like we were being...More

Cool decor and good food but margaritas are small! I judge a Mexican restaurant by the size of its margaritas and quality of their margaritas. This place gets a 9 on quality and a 2 on size. The food is good but don't fly up...More

Went for lunch early during business trip with colleagues. Service was fast but gracious. Food was very good. Enjoyed it so much that I went back for lunch that last day of my trip (convenient to Conference Center).

Not a tex-mex type restaurant. Definitely Mexican. Menu has unusual foods. Delicious. But be careful about spice if you are sensitive to spice. Tacos meal was delicious.

Enjoyed the dinner and house margarita. The chips was very good (not oily or greasy) and the "green tomatillo" based salsa & pico de gallo was great. Had vegetarian tamales which are not generally available in many mexican restaurants. The portion sizes are good but...More
