Everything was great, thanks to Omar. Our server was unfortunately buried and had a hard time managing everything, but who am I to talk, I couldn’t do her job. So in conclusion, we had a great time and we will for sure be back.

This place is very yummy and the portions are big! Everything had great flavor and the drinks were strong…however, they were out of many of them so everyone ended up with the Paloma, still a good drink! I’ve been here twice and enjoyed both experiences. I would definitely recommend this spot if you’re looking for some delicious Mexican food and a location away from the strip. Overall great and if you’re feeling up for it, you can hit up the strip club right next door!

Get the table side guac. The food & service were excellent - this is one of the best places in Vegas to have Mexican food. Period. Open 24 hours and located right next to a Strip Club (The Sapphire), don't let the location fool you. Highly recommend.

Terrible service. The server came only one time to take the order. After that he did not even bother to stop by to check if we wanted anything else or even to refill the water. He dropped the check on the table and took credit card to process. Did not even have the courtesy to ask how the food was. Someone else brought the check and the cc for us to sign. Never seen such a terrible service at any restaurant. They were not even full or over crowded that day to use that as an excuse for poor service. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. There are many good restaurants in Las Vegas. Please dont waste time here.

As always, one of the best - if not THE best - Mexican restaurants in Las Vegas. Excellent food. We very much appreciated the manager stopping by our table of 8 to apologize for the fact that service would be a bit slow, due to continuing labor shortages. Nevertheless, the staff we had were very friendly and did their utmost to keep things moving along. And their incomparable shrimp enchiladas are always worth the wait!

This experience Was one of the worst food experiences of my life!! I was very disappointed in the service and the quality of the food.

First of all the waiter was very slow and forgetful. It was quite a wait to get our drink order. The bartender was very slow in getting our drinks. The waiter was extremely slow with taking our order, never got refills with our chips and salsa, water or napkins. There was no reason for the poor service as the restaurant was not to capacity. Our food took 45 - 60 minutes from time of order to bringing it to the table. Again, unacceptable! Quality of the food was overrated for the price.

Was extremely unhappy with the whole experience as this restaurant was highly recommended and the reviews we read were very good. Will not recommend your restaurant to anyone.

High quality authentic Mexican food and great margaritas. We received a small basket of chips and salsa for a party of 4, there is a charge for refills. Could not access the mobile menu because internet service would not work inside the restaurant. After expressing this multiple times, 1 menu was provided. Despite the service and price, I would recommend and will probably eat here again.

Found the restaurant because of the bast positive reviews. What a disappointment. The place the food and the price does not constitute. Food was no good. It was mediocre. Over priced. No presentation. I order a michelada and it was so simple. Just a a glass with beer and Clamato. I mean if you’re going to charge me $60 for a plate. Please impress me with the presentation. No effort. I will never come back to these restaurant.

The food was so good and had the best flavor. The waitress was so helpful, friendly and outgoing. Sadly, it was her last day! I would highly recommend if you want a good meal at a reasonable price and not too far from the strip.

Great food!!!

Good portion sizes and the best rice and beans we’ve had at a similar restaurant ever! Everything was made fresh in-house including the salsas. Blue corn chip basket with salsa served first baskets free.

Sent out first raspberry margarita back as you couldn’t taste the raspberry at all, second one not any better but drank it anyways…sad for a $16 drink!

Server offered dessert we chose the Tres Leches cake told it was $6 or $7 and billed $12 and it was small in size but it was tasty.

We would definitely eat here again, skipping drinks and dessert, and definitely enjoying any of the meals including rice & beans for sure!!!

The restaurant shares the parking lot and building with a gentleman’s club. Passed the entrance the first time so be be on the lookout for it.

The food was very average, very disappointing. I’m not one to just be negative but it’s true. I grew up eating authentic Mexican food and this was fast food worthy. Plus why have me reserve a table?? The place was dead, very slow. The decor was beautiful but that’s it.
