Enjoyed the decor. Service was great too. Ordered steak fajitas and the portion was great. I did however need more seasoning (salt). My guest felt the same way. We only got an order of 4 corn tortillas with the big platter and had to pay extra for more. In WA state the Mexican restaurants give you more without extra charge
Overall I would go back.

The service can be improved. The manager was on the floor but not helping out. Not once did he approach our table to ask how everything was or if we needed anything, the food took along time and when we received our food it was cold. Our table was small for 6people and we had to ask different staff members to clear out our table. We even set empty plates on the table next to us which the manager saw us do and didn’t do anything or send anyone. Over all not what I was expecting.
Will not return

We sat at a booth facing the open walkway, not ideal. The service was so slow that it took a while just to get water. The food was just ok. The salsa was very different and the other stuff just ok. The taquito appetizer was good.

Service was on point from the moment we checked in to when we left and paid our bill. Staff was very friendly and welcoming and worked well together as a team. The food and drinks came out quickly too and had very nice presentation and was cooked at the right temperatures. Overall had a very pleasant experience for my first time here and will be back!

Food was good but after tip it was $92 for a quesadilla, and 2 enchilada dishes. No alcohol. Seems a bit steep, but that’s Vegas for ya.

I was pleasantly surprised how good the food was. I was not a fan of Pink Taco so I didn’t have high expectations of this place, but the food was amazing! The salsa and chips were tasty and the carne asada were filling. I will be back.

This place is amazing! The decor is so bright and fun. The service and food were outstanding. Very authentic and fresh. The guacamole and salsa are so delicious! I ordered the shredded beef tacos and they did not disappoint. I also got the sunset margarita’ it was flavorful and fruity. Will definitely be back!

Nice place, good food. However, where ever you sat, inside or outside, it's very loud. We sat outside in the 110+ degree temperature just so we could actually talk to each other, and it wasn't really that crowded inside.

We’re locals and wanted to check out the venue on happy hour. I learned at check in that reservations aren’t for bar seating but the hostess was super pleasant and helped me find seating at the bar.

Initially the bartender was nice but not very attentive, the bar was busy and I got a cocktail right away but my friend was still deciding and probably 15 minutes later never checked back she was still waiting to order.

We ordered apps guacamole, ahi tostada, chicken taquitos and veggie taquitos. Both the presentation and flavor were outstanding for each of the plates.

A second bartender came over checking on us DeLon (I’m not sure how to spell his name) and he was amazing. He noticed I didn’t touch my second drink it was just too sweet and offered a substitute. He discussed the various cocktails offered and knew the menu. Super friendly and really on top of the service. We ended up ordering dessert too that he recommend and overall had a good time.

I would return to sample the rest of the menu. For the management, DeLon is a gem. Truly.

I decided to take my husband out for a date and I was just looking around found this place on Instagram. It Looked nice , we went a little bit earlier but we sat down for some pictures. The steak was amazing , the chicken fajitas the portion of chicken was small for $27.00 dollars . What made most memorable was the bussers that where honestly so amazing, friendly and funny .They recommended the tres leche dessert which was amazing . I got me a huge calavera margarita was very sour , the size was huge though . The server really wasn't around as much I caught myself asking the bussers for things, which they were great at . Overall it was okay , it wasn't was expected but it was a good night to get away .

It was good, little over priced. If I’m gonna pay what I did there I would rather go to many other restaurants in the city. Did have a good vibe though and good drinks.

Food was excellent! We had the shrimp cocktail, quac, to start and then shared the pork carnitas, carne asada and chicken enchiladas. We shared all the food and it was all very, very tasty! Drinks were awful, the skinny margaritas were not good. The service was decent/good they just had lots of tables for a few servers, but overall things are great way and I highly recommend it.
