Lakeview neighborhood find for authentic Mexican fare! Gather with friends or first date for a grande margarita or exotic smokey pineapple one. Javier was a pleasant and graceful server. The table side guacamole is such fun and delicious. You will be swept away to embrace viva la Mexico!

I’ve been here many times. The food is generally okay, but the service is subpar, and on this last occasion, it was awful. We saw our server three times: once to take our drink order, once to take our food order, and again, when we flagged him down to get the check at the end of the meal. He never checked on us, which is a shame for him, because we would have purchased more drinks if he had showed up.

Fun night. Food was good. Restaurant was short-staffed that night. I felt bad for our waiter.

We had a 615 res for nye. When we arrived we were offered only one table choice. It was near a door through which people were continuously coming and going. It was 1 degree outside. We sat there for a few minutes with our coats on, then realized we could not enjoy our dinner this way. We told the greeter and we left. This restaurant has a sister restaurant a few blocks away and I was amazed that the greeter did not at least offer to check the availability of a table at that location. We drove over there ourselves and were fortunately able to have a lovely dinner there. But the hospitality at the larger restaurant where we actually had reservations was non existent.

The food is great, the restaurant was freezing though. All guests were wearing winter coats.

Brunch was awesome. The mimosa brunch deal is great. The menu has a lot of choices. The chips and salsa was tasty! Mimosas were very good.

Really great value! Perfect for Sunday brunch/bottomless mimosas. Was very noisy but this did not get in the way of the great food, service, and quick refills!
