We were a group of 13 from Ottawa and everything was perfect. Great service topped by even better food. Restaurant honoured the patio drink special in the resaurant without issue. We come to Dallas every year for sporting events and we will be back for sure. cheers from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Very nice place. Food was very good better than I expected for some reason. Juan was a very good server. My wife had some sort of street tacos and she loved them. I had the cheese enchiladas and they were packed full of cheese, topping were very good. Portion were big. We will be back

Our waiter, Jose, was great. There when we needed to order and get our glasses refilled, but left us to dine in peace. We thought the food, I had child relllenos and my wife had shrimp tacos, were excellent. The vinegar based cold slaw was a treat I've not seen in a Mexican food place. We sat in a booth, and we were served quickly and were not pressured to leave while we were waiting for our children to call from the airport to pick them up. I'm surprised it was not a lot more crowded, as the food is a bargain for the quality. I would definitely go back when I am in downtown Dallas.

Michael, my server, was friendly yet professional. I ordered the garlic shrimp, a dish that included chipotle. While the food was tasty, the chipotle overpowered the garlic. I have had garlic shrimp many places, including in Spain--never with chipotle. I ordered a dry Tito's martini. It was not dry. I mentioned this to Michael and said that if I ordered a second one, it needed to be dry. I did have a second one with the same ill prepared result. I feel that it was not really my server's fault, rather that of the bartender. Nonetheless, I believe that the customer's wishes should be respected. Should I return, I will insist on proper preparation.

We arrived at the restaurant and found out that our reservation was cancelled. They did however accommodate our large group. The Margaritas were really good, I also enjoyed the chips and salsa. The food not so much. I was displeased that for our large group of 20+ people we only had one waiter. He had to take care of all of us, and I didn't think that was fair at all. He did have some help from another waitress at one point but by the end of the dinner it took 40 minutes to get our checks back. We arrived at the restaurant at 7:20 and ended up leaving a little past 10:00 pm.
A waiter also brought out a birthday dessert and thought it was okay to pick up a spoon full cool whip and smear it all over my friends face. It fell on her outfit and she had to wear a jacket for the rest of the night because the stain would not come out of her shirt.

I usually don't talk negatively about businesses in social media, but our experience here was a complete Train Wreck! I've never experienced something so bad. The sad thing is that the food was Amazing!

It started with our server telling us that they can't do accommodate a special request due to food allergies ... A simple substitution for grilled chicken instead of smoked chicken and no bacon on a quesadilla. Eventually we talked with the manager and it was no problem. Our drinks took 25 minutes to arrive .. When asking for a beer glass we were told they were out of glasses ... Had to go to the bar and we instantly had a frosty glass. Then 1/2 of our parties orders did not get placed. So we are separately. Then when the rest of the food arrived ... One order with shrimp enchiladas one of the enchiladas had No shrimp. And the other order of shrimp quesadillas was chicken quesadillas. They eventually gave us a 25% discount, but it was a completely frustrating evening. We will never be back .. Too bad - the foods really good!

Made reservation. Sat 40 minutes later. Water on table 60 minutes after reservation time. Server forgot straws for kids drinks twice. Ordered chips/salsa. Salsa arrived quickly. Asked for the chips twice. Finally arrived 2 minutes before main meal. Asked 3 people for check. Finally arrived once I found a manager. Worst service I have had in over 20 years. Food decent but not worth the painful service experience.

Fish tacos were excellent - a spicy mango salsa really made them. Everyone else enjoyed their meal as well. The guacamole was tasty too.

The restaurant was clean and modern looking. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable.

If you are looking for some upscale Mexican / Southwestern food - I would recommend RJ Mexican.

The service can be quicker. The waiter assumes drinks will be brought out by another team member. We asked twice for our Sangria. Most of the food is served with too much spice. Overall, we felt that our table was not well attended by the staff.

Went here for Mothers Day dinner with our family. I know there are much better Mexican places around the area so don't bother coming here unless it's in a pinch. Things were overly greasy and the service wasn't great even though there weren't many diners there. They forgot one meal that we opted to just bring home instead of eating there.

The food and margaritas were terrible. I had two bites of the Mexican shrimp cocktail and my husband didn't drink his bright green margarita, the waiter never asked how we liked the food and never offered to take it off the bill. I would give this restaurant zero stars.
