Sunday Lunch

I went here for a Sunday lunch with a friend that was visiting. We have a tradition of catching up over Mexican. She ordered chicken enchiladas, and I order nachos with chicken. My nachos were piled high with very well seasoned chicken that had a great flavor. They were also loaded with great toppings where I felt like I was having a meal and not a plate full of chips like some restaurants serve. Our strawberry daquiris were also good and the service was pleasant. The only change I would recommend would be to have freshly made chips. The chips they bring out to your table definitely come out of a bag rather than are ones that they make. The decor was fun and was overall a good experience. Great place for lunch!

This is a good place to go if you're looking for good local mexican. No matter what you order (I've had the tacos, fajitas, and enchiladas), the flavors are robust and the plates are overflowing with guacamole, sour cream, and pico. The margaritas are nice and strong. The wait can be long and the bar is loud and cramped, but its a fun night out.

This place has pretty good food.... if you're there to eat it's best you do not go at night, this place can get loud... I suggest going from 5-9pm. The appetizers are amazing!!! i think better than the entrees. but the entrees are good as well..

Not so hot

My boyfriend and I had heard such great things about this restaurant that we decided to try it out (we live a few blocks away). I must say, I was not impressed. I think the food was okay? It was hard to concentrate on the food when I kept getting whacked in the back of the head by drunk girls crowding around the bar - which was 3 feet away from our table. This is not a restaurant with a bar, it's a bar that happens to serve food. Horrible dining experience, but I'm sure it's great if you're there for drinks.
