    Great food and great service! Salsa is amazing, skirt steak is fresh and tasty, and fried ice cream was the best.

    We made reservations, but did not need them, not too busy. It was taco Tuesday and BOGO margaritas, which were good. Daughter had the shrimp quesadilla entree, I had the steak fajitas, my husband ordered the steak entree. when the steak entree came, the meat was cold. Server Kay took it back and husband ordered the fajitas instead. we were pleased with the meal overall. the peppers in the fajitas were very salty, not sure if it was the seasoning or actual salt. chips and salsa were good. Our server was excellent and took care of the cold meat problem swiftly.

    My wife and I went there for my birthday. It was our first and last time. My chimichanga was just okay but the rice was bland and overcooked, refried beans not very good either. My wife couldn't eat the chicken salad because it was so bad. The service was good. The views of the water were good.

    All the food was cold, not even lukewarm. When we told the server she claimed that it cooled off on the way from the kitchen but that it was hot when she took it from the kitchen and that can happen sometimes. I would never eat here again.

    Let me explain my low rating. We arrived for dinner and were seated outside on a beautiful night; it was very picturesque. I have a severe corn allergy which I informed the waiter of when we arrived and before ordering. (Yes I know Mexican food isn’t my best choice but we have eaten there many times without issue). Ingesting corn usually causes me me to be hospitalized. I ordered the taco salad on a flour tortilla and was specific that no corn products be in it. The waiter seemed to take that to heart and informed the kitchen. When I was almost finished my meal, I noticed a piece of corn. I stopped eating immediately and informed the waiter. He asked the kitchen but was unable to determine how it ended up in my salad. I was not looking for a free meal. I emphasized I knew it wasn’t his fault, but I would probably end up in the hospital in a few hours. No Manager came to our table. We received our bill with $3.50 off but with an extra drink on it. I was not interested in debating, as I was in a hurry to try to get medication into me. We paid the bill and left. Unfortunately we will not be going back. Severe allergies should be taken seriously and a Manager should have been involved.

    Had a 7:15 pm reservation and were seated within a few minutes. Waiter took some time getting to our table but did a good job suggesting drinks and appetizers. Unfortunately this is where the service plummeted. He brought over our appetizer and drinks and quickly walked away without taking our food order. 40 minutes later we were able to flag down another server who went to go find our server. He completely forgot about our table. After taking our food orders and blaming his absence on a large table that was seated after us, it then took 50 minutes for our food to arrive. When he brought the check he blamed our long dining experience on a slow kitchen and not his forgetting our table! While the food was very good the service was awful and the experience ruined. We arrived at 7:10 pm and left at 9:45 pm. Our food arrived at our table at 9:10 pm. Never going back as there are plenty of options around the area.

    Weren't seated till 30 minutes after reservation time. We were sat at a table that apparently wasn't assigned a waiter. After multiple attempts to flag down a waiter, we found the hostess and said we hadn't had anyone come over for drink or food orders 40 minutes after being seated. She found a waiter from another section who came over and took our order 10 minutes later. Waiter messed up drink orders, took 3 reminders to bring our table waters. Food was about average. Overall, they were poorly managed, short staffed, and the waiters were overworked and couldn't get our orders right. We left 3 hours after reservation time with 2 young exhausted children in tow. Would never go there again.

    It was an extremely busy evening but the servers were always pleasant and professional. We had to wait a while, but it was worth it. The BOGO margaritas were excellent. Our server, Mari from Minnesota (!!!!) was a delight. So efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. The burrito was HUGE and awesome. My wife had the fajitas and was equally pleased. Thanks - we will be back

    It was very busy due to a storm, but we got in fairly quickly and placed our order quickly as well. We ordered drinks and dinner at the same time. Drinks were very late and didn’t get them until after we got our food.
