Certainly a missed opportunity as there as so many other places that do ~Mexican or Tex/Mex well. Here the food was below the not-very-high standard for mom/pop Mexican shop, for example, the chicken in the chicken enchiladas was overcooked, and I don't know how they got it to be so dark gray in color-- a long way from appetizing. To say you can make better guacamole at home would be a galactic understatement-- you can get better guacamole at Chipotle. It was, I expect, Wholly Guacamole (mild at that). It sure looked and tasted like it. The restaurant was less than half full on a Friday evening, and yet our service, while friendly, was slow.

Restaurant refused to honor my reservation. They did the same to three other groups. I was told to wait in line for 40 minutes. The restaraunt even confirmed the day before

We left without being served. The table and booth were dirty. There was only one server we saw and we were never approached for service. The website menu did not work. Lots of people waiting for takeout.
