    Great birthday celebration. Should get a stock of cheap sombreros ( Amazon has them for $7) to give away to the birthday celebrant with the tequila shot. A little chessey to recover the sombrero when we were leaving after a $225 tab for 5. But besides that a great celebration

    This is the real deal - authentic Mexican food which is fresh - well prepared and absolutely delicious. The service was excellent. We sampled all over the menu and everything was stellar. The homemade guacamole was outstanding - fresh and flavorful. The entrees were amazing. Mike's Special was fresh - veggies crisp and the shrimp nicely seasoned and delicious. The pollo Hawaiian was so different - an abundance of flavor. Margaritas . . . well they don't call it Margarita City for nothing. Damien and his staff are wonderful. Can't wait to return.

    We sat outside and had the best service! The food was delicious. Lots of options for vegetarians/ vegan/ gf. Water refills were prompt. Just the right amount of checking in to see if we needed anything but didn’t make us feel rushed or micromanaged. We sat and chatted for a long time and felt really comfortable. Highly recommend!

    Food was so so but the “back party room” was not what we were looking for in a dining experience. There was plenty of seating in the “main restaurant “ but weren’t given a choice. Had we known the “extremely loud music and drag show experience (which we are not into) we would have requested to be up front.

    A group of my friends and I decided to join this venue for their Drag show! The whole night was a vibe. Everyone was fun and easy going and ver accommodating! Our server was very friendly, attentive, and all around good spirit. We were served throughout the night and anything we wanted. Loved everything from the food to the drinks to the Queens!

    Delicious salsa and chips!!! Actually the whole order was amazing!! I had fajita nachos no green peppers, with chicken and beef - Eileen went for the Enchaladas Supreme with all Shredded beef, no cheese, add extra Ranchero sauce. Everything was perfect. Give this place a shot, we are so glad we did! Also they clearly mark gluten free on the menu, which is relevant to us, added bonus! A++

    We loved the salsa class this past week. Gary is such a great instructor and we love his skill for teaching, his sense of humor and the way he makes everyone feel welcome. Thank you DJ Loco Lopez for playing such great music each week! These classes are so much fun and the vibe and atmosphere so warm and festive.

    The food and service were fantastic. But I’ll go back to ordering in with this place. The music was blaring and the disco lights were in our eyes the entire time. We had to shout to talk to each other. Completely detracted from what could have been a great time. In all fairness our group was 40’s-60’s. Maybe younger people like this type of atmosphere.

    This has become our favorite place to stop when passing through Albany. Food is great, service is fast (important when we are just getting off the highway for a quick meal). I love the guacamole served in an edible bowl.

    Service was excellent, waitress was very attentive. Unfortunately the food was no where near the level of service we received. I will admit I did not have the Margaritas, just fish tacos, but no one in my party thought the food was very good. A bit bland. The salsa for the chips & salsa was delivered in a carafe and poured like like water. I was hoping for a chunky salsa that you could use the chips to scoop up. Other tables had towers of margaritas, which looked liked they enjoyed. So if going for a drink, this looks like a good stop.
