Booth was filthy even though restaurant was empty. Had to ask for plates to go with chips and guac. Guac did not seem fresh.

Meh at best. Hostess didn’t know anything. Waited to be called when table was ready. Kitchen was garbage. Orders were wrong(not the fault of the waiter). Food was mediocre at absolute best. Would have been better spinning through Taco Bell late night....would have had 200 in my pocket for the food we threw in the trash can.

A nice quiet, late-afternoon meal. Even at happy hour, the drinks and chips/salsa were a little pricey. The tacos and enchiladas were excellent. The service was a little slow, but we were just relaxing anyway. The staff were following Covid protocols and there was hand sanitizer on every table, as well as a QR code for the menus.

Cute place, but service and food were disappointing .. We ordered an appetizer, and thought it was taking a long time, then our entrees came out. We asked again for the app then, and it was brought out moments later (so just sitting in the back and no one delivered it?). 2 out of 4 entrees were also cold, but our waitress didn’t check in often enough for us to even voice this. Will not return or recommend.

The restaurant is really cool. But, the food had no taste. Our margaritas were $14 each, I wouldn’t taste any liquor in there.

Poor service since I had to ask for silverware, plates and napkins multiple times. Music was very loud and they couldn't seem to figure out a good volume for it so they left it loud. Staff was laughing and joking around with nothing else to do. Prices were not correct as menu and ended up paying an up-charge of $6.00 for chicken in a quesadilla which turned out to be a $17.00 mini quesadilla. Nachos came out watery and everything was bland to taste. I would not return to this establishment.

This place is a hidden gem right smack dab in the middle of Margaritaville. The best margaritas in town. The food is amazing and very authentic. I highly recommend to anyone who wants to go.

When I decided to go to this restaurant I looked online at the menu and all necessary information needed, unfortunately when we arrived the menu was not the same and the food wasn't authentic as they say and they didn't have the girls dressed in the authentic clothing like stated. But we made it work

Our server was great, we all appreciated him. But that does not excuse the VERY SMALL portions and charging for chips and salsa (which is almost always included at majority of restaurants) The Molcajete was not enough to satisfy 2 of us never mind 3-4 as was stated. (We paid x-tra for shrimp and steak thinking that would be more than enough, and thought we would have a nice doggie bag after the fact) Even the pancakes to wrap, we were given (3) until we asked for more to accommodate the 2nd person. What was that about? I usually have no reason to give poor reviews, but you left us no option.

The food was good. The service was terrible. We had a reservation and were seated early, that was great! Server came and took our drink orders, returned with drinks, minus the cocktail. Then, we waited about 40 minutes for her to return to take our order. And reminder her about the cocktail. When I received the drink I’m certain it wasn’t what I ordered, but at that point it wasn’t worth saying anything. She was no where to be seen. Received food after being there for well over an hour. Had to ask for drink refills. Then, sprite was refilled with water and water was refilled with Diet Coke. It was a mess. She asked is er wanted more chips for our queso and we said yes. We never got them. Paid over $100. Probably won’t be back.

We made a reservation for bar seating. Upon arrival, there wasn’t 4 seats available at the bar. The hostess said “sit wherever you want.” That was a little challenging since we had never been there before.
The food was mediocre, at best. The drinks were ok, lots of choices for specialty margaritas.
The server only asked one of the people in our party how the meal was and how his drink was.
Disappointed with the visit, as I had done research on this restaurant and was really looking forward to it.

The restaurant was not busy, it was clean.

However, we Waited over 10 minutes and no wait staff arrived at our table. It was only as we were leaving that one of employees noticed so, and attempted to find our waiter.

Unfortunately, this appears to be a trend and we did not stay to enjoy the food.

Food was excellent. Service was not. The server let us know that they were understaffed and we just dealt with it. Loved our meals and drinks. They need to hire more servers. Luckily we were patient. Not everyone will be.

The restaurant was in Margaritaville a new area over on 192 in Kissimmee We order 1 steak fajitas it was plenty for 2 what I notice was that their menu limited which is good but being charge for Chip and Salsa was surprising. Their Tequila Bar List was very good and their drinks reasonable. If you live in Lake Nona area don't make a reservation for 6:30 pm traffic is murder ....

I went with a group of 6 ppl on vacation, it took 30-40 to get another drink and at least an hour to get our food. The drinks were good but only got 2 while there for 2.5 hours. Do not recommend at all.

Obviously they have a lot to work out. Server was great manager was very apologetic.

Bar tenders suck. Twice sugar instead of salt. So no one cares.

Salsa is a joke no heat watery over chopped tomatoes. Worst I have ever had.

Don't think we will return for a long time. Go to estefans next door and learn how to make drinks and food!!!

no kids menus was really disappointing. we are locals but this area caters to tourists so i was surprised when we were told no kids menus.
food tasted like everything was pre-packaged and/or poor quality but at least they season food decently. will not be back
