Everyone hates me* because I am always making them eat here, at this 'overpriced'. restaurant. I would disagree, and argue that this is one of maybe four (?) fun, trendy restaurants with good food, that actually have a menu dedicated to gluten-free fare for silly yaks like me. Given how often I come here, I must be among the top 17 patrons. I truly love mexican food, and have a real soft spot in my heart for chips and salsa/guacamole. The guacamole here is excellent, although the whole "made tableside" thing is annoying. I mean, just make it in the kitchen and bring it out here. That way I can avoid sitting silently awkwardly watching you make it/providing 'helpful suggestions' on how much onions/tomatoes/jalepenos, etc you should include. The bartenders are very friendly and accommodating. ========================================================================== *And for a couple of other reasons which are mostly outside the scope of this discussion

Outstanding Mexican food at outstanding prices, but really worth it. The guacamole prepared at the table is a must. Grilled shrimp dish features big succulent shrimp over rice, tomatoes, seasoned to perfection. The lamb shank is also delicious. Sangria is addicting. A fun night in a fun place with excellent food and service.
