    Husband and I were celebrating our one year wedding anniversary. Iwanted something nice yet within our budget. So as I was looking online I saw this place and looked online. Saw they were requesting reservations. I looked to see about prices and saw it wasn't too bad so I booked our reservation. We get inside and hear country music being played. Nah I didn't hear that right? Then we went to sit down. I looked around and saw country decor and heard the music. I hought we were at the wrong place. Then I looked at menu and saw we were at the right place. We ordered and ate. The food at best was tex mex. If I wanted tex mex I would have gone to fuzzy tacos. Husband and I will not go back. I was so disappointed.

    We took our Grand-daughter to your restaurant for her 23rd bday. She loves Mexican food and so do my husband and myself. We were not disappointed!! We loved the food, the outdoor garden was appreciated as you are dog-friendly and we were traveling with our schnauzer and could not have left him the hot car in the summer heat! The fans on the patio helped to keep the atmosphere comfortable as well. The mimosas for a $ were incredible and our server could not have been nicer or more obliging! A very sweet young man and I regret I do not remember his name! Thank you all for a delicious, relaxing, and enjoyable time!!

    There were 8 people in our party with reservations and we were extremely crowded in the small space they placed us in beside the wall and the bar, the far side of the restaurant. We had 2 men whom were over 6 feet tall and it was not a comfortable dining experience. The food was great but room needs to be made for a party of people especially when reservations had been made weeks ahead of time.But! Loved the food!

    We had a bachelorlette party here and it was amazing. I would highly recommend this place to anyone planning any type of party. Or just for a fun dinner. The food and service was excellent. The atmosphere was very cheerful and entertaining. The only downfall is the parking.

    We thought for our last night in Ft Worth we'd go to the historic Stockyards and this restaurant was recommended by our hotel. While it seems to be a historic restaurant with lots of 'vintage' headshots of bands (who have played there, eaten there? not sure) we were not that impressed with the food. It took twice as long for our cab to get there on the freeway than it did to get us back to the hotel, FYI for directions. It's a big place that caters to large groups and parties, there was a table near us for a bachelorette party with some inappropriate balloons. The salsa and chips were good, but the margaritas taste like they've used the green stuff you freeze. I've had better enchiladas.

    We arrived on time for our mother's day reservation but were told there would be a 20 minute wait. These folks know how to take a reservation but don't know how to HOLD a reservation. Unacceptable! The waitress was horrible. She spent most of her time and efforts on the table next to us where her family was seated. I had to get up twice to find someone to refill our drinks and bring us salt and pepper. Great food but HORRIBLE service.

    I have always enjoyed going here. But they need a new host. She was very rude! But past that the food and restaurant was great.
