We read the reviews and decided to try it. The staff was very friendly, good service. Prices were good, but too much fried food and the quality wasn't great. However, very good chips and salsa, just not impressed with the bar menu.

All the expected dishes at a Mexican restaurant in the US. Just enough English in the menu to know what you're ordering. Reasonably attentive service, affordable pricing.

Love this place, some very interesting flavors, very subtle. The ceviche is the best I've ever had. Only complaint is that they had a big party on Thursday, so service was slow. But they are really nice people.
