Been here a few times, with my fiancé and the food is good but not consistent. The margaritas are excellent. I recommend the prickly pear margarita if you like something sweet.

This has been me and my husband's go-to restaurant for date night for many years. We have always had great service and have never had a bad meal. And I think they make the best strawberry margaritas I've ever had.
