Came on a Wednesday night and the place was empty, yet the server for the table we were seated at had no shown up yet. There were other waitresses doing something, but not for us. Service was extremely slow given they were not busy. Had...More

Our family decided to go to the restaurant, wanting to try the chocolate piñata advertised. After finding out it was $30, we quickly decided to just stick with lunch. The salsa was good if a bit watery. The queso... we've had better. The huevos rancheros...More

The 321 frozen margarita experience-- tableside-- was very special. Frozen with nitrogen. Fun and wonderful tequila in the mix. We had the berry flavor. Hmmmm. Oh, the food. Also wonderful. Not your "Uncle's" Mexican restaurant. Special. Interesting menu selections and excellent service. Beautiful decor.

If you are looking for plain no frills taco's or burrito's you don't want to go here. First, the setting is classy, not like your average Mexican restaurant. It is large with outdoor seating as well. The service is really good, off hours, can be...More

We went here for lunch about 3 o'clock in the afternoon----and were rewarded by a near empty restaurant! Nicely decorated inside with the feel of a Mexican grotto or fancy Cantina!! It is big---very spacious! The Mexican food was excellent I would say! Traditional Americanized...More
