Not only for the price of $6, nor the complimentary buffet... this place has the most delicious Margaritas in town! This place is a must. Great ambience for after work drinks and of course happy hour!!! cheers

Favorite Place

Highly recommend this restaurant, I have been coming here for years and it never fails. Fun place to come to dinner with your family and hip enough to bring your friends to dance the night away. One of the only places that stays opens till 4am in the village with good latin music.

Bad

I ordered nachos and it cost $8. I thought it was a little much but I was willing to try it. Sadly the nachos consisted of 8 or 9 chips with some cheese on it. Lame. Very lame. I also ordered a vegetable quesadilla and it basically had frozen vegtables in it. My friend asked them to take it away and told them that we shouldn't have to pay for it. Luckily the waiter handled it very well and apologized. As I was leaving I noticed that the rest of the customers looked like tourists ALWAYS a bad sign.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
