Upon our arrival we were greeted by at least 4 of the staff and were sat at our table where our server promptly delivered water, chips, and salsa which is excellent service, especially for Summit County. We had an early reservation so we got to enjoy drinks and a couple appetizers at happy hour prices. Can't say enough about the delicious margaritas, warm chips, and unique salsa. We enjoyed the table side guacamole, queso, and cheese quesadilla as well. Some of our entrees however were a bit of a disappointment. The chicken enchiladas and fajita burrito were good, but the traditional cheese relleno was bland, and the steak fajitas were overdone and they did not come with accompaniments like pico de gallo, cheese, and sour cream. We will be back and try some different menu options.

This place was fantastic! We had a large group, and they were able to allow us to make a reservation. We loved the margaritas and food and the service was wonderful. This is a place we will come back to for sure!

Had dinner here and while it doesn’t look like much from the outside, we were all pleasantly surprised by the food - homemade guacamole prepared table side was great and our entrees were all excellent. Can’t beat the value for the huge margaritas. Everyone was very friendly/ Highly recommend!

I really want to love this place it has so much potential... however we went on 12/30/19 at 7 p,m. our waiter was not attentive, food was luke warm but tasty. They were overwhelmed by the large crowd and as e result everything suffered. First margaritas were awful. We ordered 2 pitchers and they were proportioned poorly. not worth the 30/pitcher we paid. i ordered a fajita grill 2 meat they forgot one of my meats carnitas and threw a few pieces on i watched this unfold and when it arrived i had 4 small and I mean small pieces of fajita meat enough for 1 taco. I had a pile of onions to fill my plate and literally a tablespoon of rice. i asked for more meat and they promptly forgot to bring it. They were running out of food we were told by the waiter .... well then CLOSE!! and feed us that are there. Everything tasted great BUT wow, they ran out of tortillas, my bill was wrong 3 x. They did not charge me for my plate but our party of 10 left disappointed. we are form Texas and mexico so we know good food... It could have been awesome.... if not for the ladies running around saving our waiter they were awesome. and made everything acceptable.

We had a reservation for 8 of us, and when we arrived on time (actually, 5 minutes early), we found 4 other groups waiting to be sat who apparently also had reservations and who had been waiting for more than 30 minutes to be sat. We then had to wait almost an hour to be sat even though we had a reservation. The food was just average, and the service was very slow and below average. Also, the atmosphere and ambiance of the restaurant is below average in my opinion. I will not return to this restaurant, and I would not recommend it to anyone.

Restaurant failed to honor our reservation for a party of 10, including 5 small children. Left us stranded on a busy holiday-week evening with only a "sorry." Offered no accommodation, such as can we prepare takeout for you or make up for it n an other evening. Totally unprofessional.

They aren’t set up to have a group as big as ours. They shouldn’t have let me make a reservation for 16. They were completely unprepared and we had to sit at separate tables. Our food took forever to come out.

This is a cute, little, unassuming place in Frisco. But don’t let looks deceive you… The food was amazing and the service was perfect. This will be our new favorite spot for dinner after a long day of skiing.

We had a lovely time. There were able to accommodate our large party! The food was very tasty. The staff was super friendly. Next time we’re back in Frisco I’ll make the stop!
