The food here is outstanding! Get the dumplings, don’t pass on the beans, get the pork chop, get the steak…honestly, you can’t go wrong. The bartenders are amazing, and very funny. We called it Dinner and a Show!

We went on a Monday at about 6pm. Aside from a few other diners the place was nice and quiet. The food was amazing (braised beef & chicken Mole’ enchiladas) The spot looks as though it is in need of some touch ups and a little refresh as far as paint , seating area , etc ..but other than that would surely go again.

We sat outside and even though temps were around 100 -the misting fans really do the trick. We were comfortable. Service was excellent- server gave great recommendations for both drinks and entrees. We started with queso that is served with tortillas- we added chorizo to it and it was a perfect start. Our entrees were perfect- highly recommend the shrimp and polenta. The flavors are perfect. We added the street corn and rice and beans to top it off. Everything was wonderful! Highly recommend.
