Overall a very nice experience...food and drinks were very good. Only complaint would be it is a little pricey for what you get...will be back though to try the BOGO Brunch.

Everything was delicious! Usually at a new restaurant, there's at least one or two dishes my husband and I don't like but everything here was amazing! Highly recommend the queso fundido and the watermelon margarita. Service was incredibly quick without feeling rushed. All staff was highly attentive, not just our waitress, who was great. Will definitely be back.

Ordered the chicken tacos, came with tortillas on the side with rice and beans and required you to assemble your own taco. It was a great atmosphere and the food was delicious. For dessert we got the flan which was also amazing 10/10 would recommend this place!

We reserved an outdoor table. It was a little misty. They gave us an umbrella, but it took a LONG time to get it. We waited equally as long for a waitress. The restaurant was so busy they had trouble getting someone out to us. The manager ended up taking our order. He wasn't willing to let us modify anything. The food was just so-so. They made the guacamole inside instead of table-side so we missed out on that experience. (To be fair, the guac was amazing.) We had skillet tacos. Since we didn't want cheese they came very bare and very small. The manager warned us that would be the case, but they could have added something to the plate since we weren't eating the cheese. My SIL enjoyed her shrimp empanadas. Overall, though, the food was just so-so. When we finally saw a waitress she was very sweet. I don't think I'd go back for anything except drinks and guac.

I took the young lady that I cared for, from when she was 6 months old until she was 13 1/2, out for lunch. She is now 17 1/2! We haven’t been able to get together just us two for awhile. We had a wonderful time. Loved the guac, fish tacos and tres leche cake. The waiter and bus boys were attentive, friendly and professional. Love this place!!

Enjoyed the food.
They fixed my order quickly after not following directions.
Music was very loud, hard to hear across the table.
