    We felt like we were being rushed out of the restaurant despite the fact that it was basically empty. Although the food came out quickly, it wasn't the best quality.

    We were there on Valentine's Day & the restaurant was decorated nicely and gave us chocolate covered strawberries, no charge, for dessert. The food was delicious and plentiful (lots of leftovers). Very nice staff! We will definitely be back!!!

    Most of the night was fine and my friends enjoyed celebrating our birthdays. However we were overcharged for drinks that my friend had to call about the next day. We are waiting on them to credit our credit cards. When the dinners arrived, my meal did not come out. We had to ask where it was and they had to go find it. 15 minutes later it came out. I didn’t feel well and choose to take my dinner home. When I got home and went to eat my dinner, it was not what I ordered. I ordered steak and when I cut into it, it was chicken!! I literally get the same thing every time. I was highly disappointed! Not sure I’ll be back anytime soon.

    Overall disappointing - guests arriving after me were seated within inches of my back. Margaritas were below expectations - none with fresh squeezed juice and all with some mystery frozen mix. I struggled to find something to eat even though the menu is extensive. It was so loud that my request for table side guacamole resulted in 2 small scoops of regular (which was ok). Settled on a steak quesadilla appetizer which was average.

    Overall liked the place, however my husbands food came out lukewarm. The server did take it back (once we got her attention) and had it warmed up. Taste was good, chicken tacos had a good amount of meat, ceviche (shrimp) was flavorful and the shrimp were cooked well, not rubbery at all. Would go back again on a slower night (we ate there on a Saturday) to see how it compares. We were also told a new menu was being started this week with more Peruvian flavors.

    Decent straightforward authentic Mexican food. Nothing to write home about but it hit the spot. Service could be much more attentive and professional, and the waitress really struggled to communicate in English. My son’s quesadilla was forgotten—when the mistake was realized they rushed it out and it came out burned. The place was packed on a weeekday night.

    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.

    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.
