    We had reservations for 4. The doors were locked. The sign said they were open and there were workers inside but they ignored us. We tried calling too but no one answered. We ended up going elsewhere.

    Lack of taste on what I ordered. Service. Was good no complaints.. something. Doesn’t tell me will become a great place to eat.. food needs more flavor… in my respectful opinion. NO PRICY!!

    The website is very deceiving. The drinks were not good and the food was just mediocre. The layout is not the best but that could be because of location. I can definitely say that I or we will not return back.

    Went with a workgroup party of 16. Made reservations a couple of days in advance with no problem. Promptly were sat and our servers and staff did an amazing job from cradle to grave. The food was really great and surpassed our expectations.

    The experience was really good. Even though it was Presidents Day and it was little slow, I could tell even if they were busy, the service would still be the same. I’ll definitely come back again !!

    Had a 9:45 reservation for a birthday dinner. Upon arrival we were immediately told that last call for food to be cooked would be 10:30. Keep this in mind as i cont. to discuss my experience. I don’t like that the establishment allows such late reservations knowing that the kitchen closes at 10:30. I had a large group in my reservation, so we all were rushed to put in drink orders as well as food.I feel like this is something that the customer should be made aware of prior to making a reservation so that a proper decision can be made as to what time to select as a reservation; especially for larger parties. This didn’t give us time to really go through the menu thoroughly.After ordering we immediately received our appetizers (Fried pickles) The were delicious but a tad be salty. We also received drinks. Everyone in the group ordered margaritas which were terrible. I’m a bartender so I’m well aware of how a margarita should taste. I was not happy with the way my mango margarita was prepared so i asked to have them all sent back and remade only for them to still be disgusting. This is a “Californian Mexican” restaurant; if anything, the bartender should know how to make a decent margarita. Do not order the margaritas, you will be disappointed. Moving along to main courses; i ordered something simple as chicken quesadillas; the chicken was great but my quesadilla lacked the cheese that makes it a quesadilla. My husband ordered a Nashville hot chicken sandwich and said that it was cold but although it was cold the sandwich is massive and was delicious. I honestly believe that bcuz the kitchen was about to close we received subpar food. Not many tables needed to be waited on so i feel that our food shld have been prepared substantially but this was not the case. Overall service was ok, our waiter Cordell was what i would describe as an ok server, could have been better because as mentioned before only three tables were being serviced. I dont think I’ll be returning.

    Big Kahuna is a nice, light fare restaurant. We ordered chicken rice bowls and they were very good. We split a brownie a la mode and it was REALLY good. Overall, pretty much what we expected. The ambiance is rather cold and somewhat noisy, but we went for the Mexican fare and it was very good. We would go again.

    Staff was very friendly. It was a little dark. My husband had to use the flashlight on his phone to read the menu. A little slow getting our drinks out, however, we were not in any hurry. Prices weren’t too expensive however not cheap either. My husband LOVED his burger. My burrito was good. I wasn’t crazy about their salsa. I would definitely go back, I would just get maybe the quest instead of salsa. It was definitely more laid back than some of the surrounding restaurants.
