    The service here was ridiculously horrible. All the servers had black eyes and one was extremely unprofessional. Literally thought he was on something. I would not recommend. I guess the Drag brunch is fun but we went there outside of that specific brunch.

    We had an amazing time at the drag brunch! The food and drinks are so tasty, and there is a great selection to please everyone's different tastes/preferences. The performers were full of energy, which was so entertaining and fun. We all agreed we will be back, for sure!

    This was my second time dining here, and I am unsure if I will return. I LOVE Mexican food, but I have yet to be wowed. The most disappointing thing this time around was the margaritas.

    I arrived for my lunch reservation with a friend and stood at the door a full minute before a (g)host met us. A host finally came to the door and told us we could sit over there and pointed at a table in the corner. Fifteen minutes passed ignored by restaurant staff before we left. This place should not be open.

    The ambience of this place centers around the enormous bar in the center of the restaurant. Food was slightly above average. Had the guacamole (very good), yuka Frita (average - just serve the yuka fries and curtido and spicy red sauce on top), Churrasco (very good), Camarones a la Diabla (very good). For drinks, we had Ghost Pepper Margarita (good), Ghosted (very good) and the Classic Margarita (average - too much lime). We ended the night with shots of termana reposado (yummy).

    For some reason it was a quiet Saturday night here. Drinks were great. For food, we ordered the empanadas which we fantastic. Not your average empanada. They had a croissant like texture on the outside and the meat inside was flavorful. We also ordered tacos of course which were very good and the fried yuca was a great side. Definitely give this place a try.

    Zero stars please! The worst food I've ever had! Ordered 1) Chips and Salsa - gave chopped tomatoes for salsa and the chips were stale and soggy. 2) Papas Bravas - was just sliced potatoes swimming in oil. 3) Shishito Peppers - I guess salt is expensive, right? Had no salt whatsoever. 4) Ghost Pepper Margarita- well it was potable! So, I guess I'll give them a star for that? Also, the server! Oh wow! He didn't even have courtesy to let us know that Kitchen was closing! So, why do you let us OpenTable at 9:30, if till the time you can come back to attend us for Entreé.

    The food and drinks were fantastic! Our server gave us complimentary chips and salsa when our drink order was delayed. However, the music was much too loud. There was a DJ-too much noise in a small space made it difficult for conversation.

    Reservations was overbooked. My reservation was following the hostess to our table when another costumer decided to call me “nasty” in front of everyone. When I mentioned I had a reservation, the other woman said she reserved the specific area. I was appalled when I the hostess quickly walked away instead of resolving the situation.

    Overall it was a good time! The only downside was the service... our server was nice, but was no where to be found most of the time and didn't bring us our drink order until we received the check to pay and leave, so we didn't really get to try the drinks which was unfortunate on Cinco de Mayo. The best part though was the ambiance - the venue was nicely decorated and they gave customers little things to take home which was great! I think if we had better service I would've given the place 5/5.

    Came in with some friends. We were a bit early and waited for our friends to get there. Once everyone was there it took awhile before the came over to take out order. Once all the food came out, one person didn’t get their food. Come to find out he never place the order. The cover up was to double the order to make up for it. It was still a good time, but some tweaks need to be made.

    The service was great but the food was just okay. Carnitas should have flavor and my dish had none. Restaurant was empty for brunch which is surprising but maybe because it was Easter.
