Good margarita & food... Wandering mariach too loud. Couldn't have conversation with people we were with when he was near our table. Seems like all restaurants in the desert operate on high decible levels. Live music always ear splitting...

We both ordered lobsters and they were overcooked. It took forever for our food to arrive. The margaritas and deserts were ok.

The inside dining room was so loud. There were drunk large groups of people at many tables. The food was very disappointing. The patio might offer a better dining experience. It looked nice.

The place was packed (spring break) and about a 45 minute wait UNLESS you made a reservation with Open Table like I did. Great. My reservation was honored immediately (while crowds of people were in line) and even though the restaurant was packed, service was most excellent and immediate. Barely any wait time for food and it was super delicious.

Best to make reservations if a Saturday night. Lovely lit patio under the stars with a wonderful mariachi trio who had as much fun as the diners listening to them. Our waiter Jorge was amazing. He was very busy but gave wonderful, friendly, and gracious service. He also made a terrific table side guacamole.
Our guests from out of town loved the whole experience.

Very festive atmosphere with a very attentive waiter and great mariachi music. The margaritas were fantastic and the mahi-mahi was delicious. The Carnitas we’re also great. I’d go back in a heartbeat.

We've been coming here for years. It's pretty, bustling with people and good food. Biggest complaint is the kitchen gets overwhelmed and food takes a long time to arrive, although the wait staff does replenish chips and drinks. But, usually worth the wait. The orders come out right and the food is fresh and tasty.

This last experience was disappointing as the front of the house staff were disorganized and unwelcoming. We asked to be seated outside, yet were taken to an inside table. Not a big deal, however, when we walked back to the front and advised of the mistake, the employee didn’t acknowledge the mistake, nor apologize, nor lift her head up from what she was looking at, nor made eye contact, but managed to arrogantly tell us to take a few steps to the right... We get it, the restaurant is busy, yet we remained cordial despite the rudeness. More embarrassingly is that I recommended the restaurant to my out of country guests and they were not impressed with the experience.

Food was overpriced and not good. I had crab enchiladas and the crab was so bad I couldn’t eat them. Shared mediocre fish tacos with my wife. Wouldn’t recommend this place to anybody.

We had 3 families for dinner including 4 kids under age 8 and 2 teens. Because of the live singer/guitarist who walked around and sang personalized songs at each table, it made the evening fun for the kids of all ages. We tipped the entertainment generously as he made our night and I know he really appreciated it. Food was great (better than it has been in the past few years) and service was efficient and cheerful. We will definitely go back.
