The lighting is way too dark. There's a difference between mood lighting and I can't see my food. Disclaimer, I'm 24. Also, the serve a trio dip(2 salsa's and guac) the salsa verde is great and so is the guac but the third sala is inedible making the value poor because you have to end up buying the $9 queso.

Probably not the best place for a date. The game was on and the table next to us was obnoxiously loud. Other than that food and service was good! Would definitely go again maybe on a different day and with a group.

Everything was great! I’m kinda picky and they modified my order perfectly.
They don’t have dessert, so if you’re craving sweets, either have a cocktail or a backup plan.

Fun “industrial” ambiance. The Pineapple Margarita and guacamole were great. Entrees were nothing special and our service was awful. Our server took off after delivering our food and we waited for over 30 minutes for our bill before having to approach a manager to be able to pay. Unfortunately, I won’t be back.
