    Decent Mexican with some innovative menu items. Many items too salty or greasy. Service fairly slow and inattentive. They build in an automatic 20% tip which seemed odd for only a party or 4. I won’t avoid going back but certainly won’t go out of my way either to return.

    Great food, staff was exceptional!! Can't stress enough how wonderful staff was. We were there with 15 people for a post graduation lunch/dinner. They handled all the obstacles we could throw at them. Margaritas were awesome !

    Great food, alcoholic drinks were very good. Suggest to change menu as some drinks and food no longer serviced but all in all, this was the first time for my party as well as me and we loved it. Staff was very attentive and responsive as well.

    Our group of five all had tacos of various types for lunch. Chapulines, pulpo, mushroom and veggie tacos were all rated very high! The mushroom tacos were a welcome surprise in that although I eat mushrooms almost every day, the seasoning and somewhat picant flavor of the mushroom tacos was not as anticipated, but nonetheless spot on!! Beans and rice also tasty! Service was very good too. The restaurant was not overly busy, but I was here a year or more ago for dinner when it was crowded and service did not suffer from the rush. They also have a nice selection of tequilas; we will test some of these on our next dinner visit.

    The food and service was great here. We selected this location for a business meal for 7 individuals. Based on the noise level inside the restaurant, I would not recommend this location for a large group who is looking to have a conversation with one another. If you are looking for a place to eat for a smaller group, or a large group who does not want to have a conversation with the full table then absolutely book here. The value for the high quality of food and drink was excellent and the service was great. My only hesitation was the poor acoustics which made the restaurant VERY LOUD! FOOD WAS EXCELLENT!

    The extensive menu made choosing an entree difficult. I ended up with the chicken mole burritos and my son chose the steak with Oaxaca cheese. We both enjoyed our meals, but I found the mole sauce to be a little sweeter than I prefer. Would be nice if the outside patio had seats with backs rather than just benches and picnic tables.

    Lovely evening dinner outside under the lights and colorful banners. The hubs and I each ordered fajitas and a salad. Delicious, hot, fresh, and tasty. Our server was so friendly. It was an easy late evening, so not crowded. They seated us right away. The outdoor seating has warm ambiance.

    The food and the setting (outside under an awning) were very good. Having chairs with backs would have made it more comfortable for our aging party of six, however. The service was friendly and attentive at first, but then we started feeling neglected in mid-meal. This is somewhat understandable given the challenges of having sufficient wait-staff these days. Overall, we had an enjoyable Sunday lunch.

    I've been there a few times, but the last two they haven't had available some of their menu options. So lately I've had the luck of ordering something that's not available/or they've run out of. I joked with the waiter to go to the Harris Teeter nearby to go get my food. I really wanted the salmon and my friend really wanted some flan. :)

    We ate outside and it was quite noisy. The chips and salsa were excellent, as was the queso fundido and the birria tacos. The carnitas and chicken tacos were just ok. And the service was really slow - we had to flag someone down at least 3 times. It's possible they were simply short-staffed, though...

    The food was great, the staff was great...and they have a nice birdy surprise that I loved. It was just too loud to hear people at the table. It was a Friday, and we were in the middle of the deck, so it's to be expected. Next time I will ask for a table in the way back.
