    Black Girl Magic is what brought us out! This place had some very good service personnel. As for the food—Brunch; the selections were minimal bluntly NOT GOOD! The venue is nice, roomy but needs logistical expertise

    The people were friendly and there was no wait time when we walked in (we had reservations). The appetizer took a while to come out and wasn’t hot when it arrived. It was dip so we didn’t complain. We waited an hour or so and figured we’d just take the meal to go but it never actually came out because the waiter forgot to put the order in. Probably wouldn’t return. Wasn’t worth the hassle for parking.

    Server was attentive and very helpful; value of food was too high. Margaritas were tasty (certainly recommend the Blackberry Margarita!). The veggie quesadilla had okay flavor and was full of veggies. Unfortunately, I felt that the food was too expensive for their bland nature and mediocre quality.

    Brunch was fun but we were sat away from the drag show, our server didn’t really want to move us closer and told us that the tables were reserved but eventually did. We also didn’t get helped by a server after we were moved.

    The food and drinks are extremely overpriced. The cost for a margarita is $18+. The cost for a burger is $18+. The cost for nachos is $23. The cost for chips and queso is over $13+. These costs are out of control.

    The location is everything. The vibe is great. The food is basic and the drinks are basic. It’s is definitely not worth the prices. I’ve had better food from a food truck and better drinks at a college party. It’s all about dining in the neighborhood. That’s really what your paying for, the experience. The server was incredibly friendly. Thank you Bobby.

    Service wasn’t good. Server not friendly. Long periods between when the table was checked for needs. Drinks were very slow to come out. Had to send some drinks back because they did not taste good at all (margaritas, arguably a drink that should be a strength for this establishment). Multiple times the wrong drink or food was brought to us.

    Service was slow. We had to wait for our food for a good 40 minutes if not longer. All four of us were not impressed with our food at all. The steak was so dry and they rice and beans had no flavor. Most of us did not finish our food. I will say that the margaritas were pretty tasty. I was disappointed as I used to come here all the time and the food was excellent. I probably will not go back after this experience.

    Been here a few times! Margaritas tend to be on the sweet side, but tasty. Burgers and quesadillas are also good. Went after a Cubs game recently, and they were out of half the menu and a few of the margs... Gets rowdy later in the evening, but always a welcoming crowd. Great, friendly service!
