    Service, food and ambience are good but margaritas are very average and that's not good enough at $16 for a over sweet Cadillac with average Tequila and average orange liquor. Asked for a 2nd with less Triple Sec,and it arrived sweeter than before.If your claim to fame is the greatest Margaritas, you need to get back to the drawing board.

    The food was ok nothing special, We had the ceviche trio, the pork poblano mole and the sea bass. The mole was sickeningly sweet and the rice was a bit cold. The sea bass was a bit over cooked up. All in all would never go back
