    I met my cousin, visiting from Boston, here on a lovely, but chilly Monday night. He, of course, wanted to sit outside. Brrr! Thankfully there were heaters above the outside bar seating. After several tasty cocktails (wine for him, classic margaritas for me), we both had machaca meals. I had the tacos and he had the burrito. Both were delicious as always. Service was great even after I spilled! He stayed a while later and met friends in town for the same conference and texted me later how much he enjoyed it.

    Delicious food. Fantastic drinks. Service was generally friendly and a touch slower, however, not sure if that is part of the experience to sit and take your time as a patron. Enough to notice, but not enough to not return. :)

    Made reservations earlier in the day for dinner before the Suns game. Was sat within 5 minutes of checking in. Service was impeccable and food was delicious. We had the street corn as an appetizer and shared the shrimp fajitas. The house made corn tortillas were 🔥

    Honestly- we were there the night of the Zac Brown concert. The bar was a bit slow but otherwise service was great and so was the food. I had the braised chicken bowl and my hubby had the mani tacos. Spicy skinny margarita was HOT but yummy! We will be back

    Food was tasty and reasonably priced. We ate outside and it was comfortable after the sun went down because they had heaters. Great location if your going to an event at the footprint center.

    It was crazy busy before a concert but we were seated right at our reservation time and got quick service so we were on time for the show. Food and drinks were delicious and very reasonably priced. This is always our downtown go to. They have the music up VERY loud so it's not great for conversation, but a fun night.

    Pre-show dinner (Elton John). Queso was quite tasty. Wife had the chicken fajitas and I had the shrimp tacos. Both were excellent. The rice was also very good. On challenge was it’s very loud and hard to have a conversation.

    This restaurant is located within a short walking distance to the convention center. I made lunch reservations for 12 noon so that we could eat during the 90 minute time allotted for lunch during a large convention. When we arrived 10 minutes early, we found a small crowd of people waiting outside the locked doors of the restaurant. So, we had to wait our turn behind 35-40 people, most of whom had no reservations, until they opened the doors at 12:00 and filtered all of those people in to tables. What the heck?! The restaurant should open by at least 11:30 am for lunch to prevent a line of people forming at the front door and to allow people with reservations to be seated in a timely manner. Food was below average, not what we expected or had at other Mexican restaurants in Arizona. The salsa served with chips(somewhat stale) was not very good and it was served in a small dish. We had to flag down someone to bring more. Pretty disappointing given it has good reviews.
