    Location is in a mall, hard to park on a Saturday and confusing to find. Attractive interior. Food was fine but not worth repeating. Service was terrible. We were there with a group of 12 for a birthday celebration and had to get up and search for our server - or anyone for assistance - several times. Drinks were mixed up or didn't show up, orders were also missing and had to be requested. Due to the party size, we were assessed a significant gratuity that definitely was not earned. Very disappointing, we won't be back.

    We wanted to order another round but the server didn’t come back to check on us much once we got our food, he kept on checking on the table next to us, we tracked down a female server she was able to get us another round.

    This was our first time to this location. The place was very nice. It was louder than I expected but didn’t change our dining experience. The waiter was new. Not sure why our drinks took 30 minutes to get. Especially on margarita day. The bar should have been well staffed for the day. Then my arrived wrong. I ordered a second drink right away knowing it may take a while again. Margaritas were also half off for margarita day yet I was charged full price. Just another delay. It was corrected. Overall the meal was really good.

    Our waitress was nice but she spent a lot of time talking to the table behind us. I noticed someone (her boss?) had to speak to her twice about getting back to work. I would have liked a paper receipt so I could see the breakdown of the bill. February 20th was the day 20% was to be removed from the total bill. Seeing that breakdown on paper would have been comforting to know it was taken out. The waitress showed us her electronic device but I really couldn't see any details for the breakdown of the bill.

    Was greeted right away, and seated ahead of schedule. Was disappointed there was no taco salad in the edible shell on the menu, but they did have plantains which I love. Service was good. Food was tasty and prepared quickly. Lots of light and pleasant atmosphere.

    There were 6 of us meeting for a dear friend’s birthday. We had made reservations and that went smoothly and the service was promptly done even though we went at the most busy time. Food was good and prices not too bad. The server was helpful and polite. It’s what we were wanting.. a good reasonable priced casual restaurant!

    Sat upstairs which was very nice, but the high top tables, the stools were very uncomfortable. Would not sit there again. Ordered burrito which was ok but very dark in one side, almost burnt. Would not order that again either. Husband’s order was wrong as well. Usually a great experience, as we frequently go there, but not great last night

    This is probably my new favorite Mexican food spot. We drove from Portsmouth to go to the mall, and we had dinner here. The queso dip was amazing. Food was outstanding and the service was great. Only down side, a bottle of Corona was $7, that’s pretty expensive for a bottle of beer, I would have gotten more than two if they weren’t so pricy

    This was our second time here—we were seated upstairs and were able to hang out and watch football in a generally quiet environment. We started with queso and chips while we waited for our wine. Very flavorful—and different from your chain restaurant white queso. We each had a burrito for dinner—lots of flavor, a little spicy for my husband’s palate. Large portions. A nice change of pace from the chain restaurants at Short Pump.

    First time visiting, we shared it with some friends, we had a good time and ordered drinks we had a good time, the pleasant atmosphere and the waitress were very attentive, the food was good but my opinion of the rice not too good was tasteless, I didn’t eat it. But the rest was very good. But definitely I would return again.

    While we were hoping to sit at the upstairs patio, it was not open, which seems strange for a Sunday afternoon, but we had a very nice time on the side patio. The food was great. Our drinks were wonderful, and the server was terrific.

    The food didn’t warrant the price. We drove over an hour to try this place out. The service was slow, the waitress didn’t bring extra waters or chips (which were unlimited because we paid for them) and when it was time to pay, we still didn’t have more chips and refills. It was really upsetting that they add an auto 20% tip to their bill which doesn’t encourage the staff to actually care and put in good work. We legit didn’t see our server for almost 15 minutes at one point
