    Took my family and boyfriend to this restaurant to celebrate my moms birthday and I couldn’t have asked for a even better. They made my moms day more special and surprised her with a candlelit dessert. It was so sweet of the workers to do that. Also the food was great never had rice taste that good and the micheladas were soooo good. Definitely will be coming here again.

    I went a day early to reserve a table for the baseball game. Wanted to make sure we could see the TVs since they were small. I was assured that we would. When we arrived the next day we were told that table could not be reserved. I explained that we would have gone elsewhere but we were assured that table. We sat elsewhere and for most of the time the table Sat empty. Either way the food was definitely lacking. Especially for a place in San Diego. It was very salty and all the cheese seemed like nacho cheese and not real cheese.

    The service was immaculate! We were early for our reservation and was seated immediately. The server informed us of restaurant week, she was surprised that we knew about it. She provided the menu and took our drink orders. Everything was delicious! I have a food allergy and needed a modification and she went above and beyond assisting me. Kudos to the chef/cooks for assisting in ensuring that I had a pleasant meal.

    Service was excellent! Our server Ceci was very helpful when we couldn't decide if we wanted pineapple on a happy hour taco. She did help us with suggesting to keep the pineapple on the taco. My sister was very pleased on how delicious the taco was. I absolutely loved the skinny Margarita. We will be back!!

    Great food, great drinks, great service! We have been here several times. It’s our new go-to restaurant. Kayleigh, JoJo, and Heather have been excellent servers. Outdoor patio is not too loud and neither is the outdoor bar. Inside seating is a little louder but still not bad. Get a flight of mezcals with your meal and you won’t be sorry!
