    Was sat outside. Didn’t ask for outdoor. The bugs and mosquitoes were out of control. Unfortunately we ate very fast and left. Wish we were given a choice. I made reservation but didn’t ask for outdoor. Unfortunately. May take a while for us to come back. And I simply love the food and the waiters. Very professional

    Awesome service food and atmosphere. Frozen margaritas were a great way to start our evening. Had the pulled pork burrito and black bean amd corn burrito. All was delicious and a perfect ending to our day out on the golf course. Did I mention margaritas?? Awesome all around without breaking the bank!! Big thank you to all the staff Planning our next visit real soon

    Service was great, loved our waitress. The food was absolutely delicious. Only issue was the noise level, it was kinda loud and hard to hear each other. Otherwise, it was a great experience. This was our 2nd time there and we’ll definitely be going for a 3rd.

    If you are looking for a very loud very boisterous place that serves great food, this is the place for you. I was pleasantly surprised at how efficient the service was dealing with the large crowd and noise. They made you feel welcome and not stressed. Food was fresh and prepared beautifully. Highly recommend.

    Recommend for anyone with Celiac they know about Gluten. Very tasted and all was good until the check came and we had 2 extras charges on there and the waited was arguing about it until he realized his mistake. So check your bill.

    The food was okay nothing special BUT good tasteful food my husband liked the chicken and rice . Downside, I made reservations a month in advance and still waited 45 minutes. I understand it was Valentine’s Day so that’s why there was a long wait but only thing is they don’t have an area so that you can sit and wait people literally was in the walk/door way the place is tight. Another thing I did not like was the fact that it was a prefix menu there was no place on the website that stated for the night of Valentine’s Day it will be a prefix menu. So some where that have stuff on the menu for $20 My husband ended up paying $200 for food we did not eat. All we wanted was some tacos and some drinks we had no choice but to get a full meal. Over all experience was okay.

    The service was absolutely terrible. We ordered and then waited for 30 minutes without any chips or salsa and waited for our appetizers. Then our entrees came out. I asked about our appetizers and the waiter said “oh I didn’t write it down.” However we did see him write it down. Then he said don’t worry, I didn’t charge you for them. It was extremely disorganized and very disappointing. No apology and no manager to step in.

    Guacamole and chorizo nachos for appetizers and then various tacos for all 4 of us. Also 2 pitchers of red sangria. All was good. Our group found music a bit too loud. Otherwise, a fun night out.

    The food was very good, although they don't give you a lot. We both got the tacos, which didn't come with any sides. Sides are extra $. The cocktails were just okay, not as good as the food was (we tried 3 different cocktails) , and they weren't as potent as we would have liked. The décor and ambiance were top notch.

    This is my third time at the restaurant, that should tell you iI love the place. This time I came for a Sunday Brunch alone... It was the best relaxing time after church AND the food was delicious as always. I had the shrimp corn Omelette with the Special Green sauce and Red sauce... DELICIOUS!! The Margarita was a hit as well.. I think I found my brunch spot!!
