                                                        it was a busy Friday night for the restaurant. We got seated quickly but had a wait until a server came by to take our order. Once that was settled great margaritas and delicious food was devoured..

                                                        We were given strict instructions to be there within a 15-minute grace period and that all guests must be present to be seated. We did as they asked. They sat us and took 15 minutes to come take drink orders. We were almost 30 minutes in when they took food orders. We were being served at the time I expected our lunch to be concluded. Very disappointed. Most of the party commented that, had the tip not been included, they would have tipped much lower.
