Will never recommend this place. Huge disappointment. Food was cold and lousy. Music was urban and awful. Waitress tried hard and was only good point. We waited years for this place to finally open, read good reviews...and it was literally the worst.

Food was good came out super quick which was cool but also odd considering you’re expecting it to be made fresh so it should take a little longer that 5 minutes. It was microwaved unfortunately as the plate was very hot but the food itself was just warm. The music was WAY TOO LOUD. TOO MUCH BASS. Could barely hear my server.

For Rita is always fun. The six of us had a great time. On Mondays they have specials that really are terrific. But the thing I was most impressed about was after I had paid the bill, our waitress noticed that one of our guests had not eaten anything of his entree. At that, she reopened my bill and gave us credit for the entrée not eaten. You don’t see that at many restaurants! I believe her name was Sarah.

Ate outside with 7 people including two kids under three. Kids were able to run around and play with the giant Kenya. Delicious margaritas and food, street corn guacamole was the best guacamole I’ve ever had!

Enchiladas, which are supposed to be their specialty, were over done and literally impossible to cut. Service seemed nice but insincere. Had high hopes but fell flat.

Amazing service for how large of a group we were, she even offered to split checks. The did was quite good, and given that it was happy hour, very worth the price. I also love the location and the decor. Great spot for large groups!

From the valet parking attendant to the cashier, the staff was friendly and welcoming. The server was attentive and came back frequently to make sure everything was going well. The food was exceptional but not really authentic Mexican. Nevertheless, it was delicious. The atmosphere was energetic and lively but bordering on too loud to comfortably carry on a conversation. We will definitely be back for more!

Chile relleno was small and unexceptional. Margarita was blah. We had a reservation for 2 at 8:00 and were given a high hat table on roof. Freezing cold!

So, let’s start by saying we were initially a reservation of 5 and they were very accommodating to make it 8, 30minutes before our sitting. The bartenders were great... so we say down after having a drink and our server was nice but extremely occupied. He forgot to come back to take our entré order 20 minutes after the appetizer hit the table. He bought us a drink, great. Then the entre

The food is spectacular. Interior design is 5-star. However, the music is not in harmony with the high caliber food and interior design. The music was artificial, synthesized disco that was up too loud. It was an unpleasant distraction from the food. Play peaceful music at a lower volume that supports the great food.

We had a great time last night. Our waitress was very kind to us, we didn't know what we wanted to drink and she was very helpful in explaining and recommending drinks. The food was delicious, we didn't have to wait so long for it and the atmosphere was incredible, on Tuesdays they have DJs and it was super cool. Definitely 5 starts!

Service was slow, I had to ask repeatedly to get a water, and two members of our party had their orders come out wrong then had to ask a a manager to go see where their food was when the correct order also took forever. When it finally came the food was excellent but the service left enough to be desired that I won’t be going back anytime soon, particularly when El Camino and Rocco’s Tacos are 10 minutes away.

Great restaurant with good drinks & food. Was a bit disappointed that my 15 top table only had one server. Took over 30 minutes for anyone to get their first drink. Server was sweet but she clearly needed assistance which no one really gave her.

This location is generally pretty loud. They have good food and drinks. Service can be slow but if you are a regular customer they remember you after a few visits. I recommend the chicken enchiladas and nachos!
