Overall the food was good. The only problem that I had was about the serves. He took to long to take our appetizer order, until I mentioned that we were ready. Once he placed the order he left to take a smoke break instead of taking our order. I noticed that when he came back he didn't even wash his hands.

I did mention to the hostess the lack of attention he was giving our table and he confronted me giving me excuses instead of taking care of the table and apologizing. At the end of our meal we had two birthdays (he brought us two desserts) but he didn't offer coffee or desserts to the rest of my guests.

I will return to the restaurant because the food is good but will try to get another server.

The drinks are favorite is the Diablo margarita made with mezcal. It has a bit of kick. They serve a warm, tomatillo salsa with their chips. They also have a red salsa, too, also served warm. My absolute favorite dish is the mahi mahi tacos. I get it every time!

Terrific Mexican restaurant - one of the best in the suburbs. The owners are always there to greet you and are so welcoming. The drinks are great - creative margaritas and mojitos. We have gone several times and the meals are always terrific.

This place is very deceiving. It is in a strip mall and not easy to get to. But wow, is it worth it. Best margarita I ever had. The. Crab cake special was terrific, the salmon was outstanding. The banana cake was to die for. What an amazing meal. Can’t wait to return!

Food and service was great! But the restaurant is not conversation friendly. Tables are too close together and the noise level is extremely high. I wear hearing aids and I had to turn them all the way down because the noise hurt my ears. Must be the acoustics. Probably won’t return.

Moe knows what he's doing! He greets you at the door, his employees like working for him, and the food is creative and delicious. Can't go wrong with a margarita or mojito either.
