It was okay, our server was wonderful and definitely made the night better. The juice from the flavored margaritas must’ve been old because they were clumpy and made everyone that drank one feel sick. Also my biggest disappointment was I requested a patio table when the reservation was made. Once I arrived I told them it was made for the patio and they told me “oh I didn’t see that. If you still want the patio it’s gonna be a 30 minute wait” and I had people arriving for my birthday dinner so I couldn’t have my party wait when I had told them a time to be there.

Nothing special. Your standard American Mexican fare. The shrimp enchiladas are good.

They seat you far apart from others. During this time of social distancing you feel safe. Food is excellent and the service was good. The only thing I don't like is that they always try to push the Patron margarita which is expensive and they ask if you want guacamole but don't tell you it's an extra charge.

When we arrived the greeter did not have our reservation. He asked another staff member who thought the restaurant didn't take reservations. Fortunately, they had space and seated us.

My chimi was very crispy, somewhat burnt and and the shredded beef in side was burnt also. Service was very slow.
All in all a mediocre experience

We had a reservation for 14 at 2:30 but still had to wait for our table. Not many in the restaurant. Drinks and food was slower as only one server. Food ok bit I’ve had better food there before! Just an off day!

I took my Mom to dinner while I was visiting over the holidays. As soon as we entered the manager, Michelle, made us feel very welcomed. We enjoyed a great meal and service from our server. My Mom enjoyed her visit very much and is looking forward to getting back

Poor food quality, high prices
Waiter was not knowledgeable when asked questions about menu and bar drinks
Ordered Patron margaritas that were to be hand shaken tableside. Drinks were delivered from bar, not hand shaken.
This used to be a favorite stop when visiting family in Arizona.

Had a reservation for 6 wasn’t seated until 6:30 because I big party was sat at our table. Told us five mins when it was 30 min wait for a reservation. Then didn’t get our food until 7:30 most of it was cold. Never saw a manager until after we were finished and still didn’t even come to apologize.

The service was extremely slow for an entire two tables on the patio. Food was over an hour from order to table. For a couple of orders of enchiladas, a salad & two happy appetizers, that’s poor.

From the time we walked in we were treated good! Our server was excellent and on top of it. The Manager was very nice and came to our table to check on us. The hostess was very courteous.
