Food was very good and the presentation was great. I had the steak tacos which I really enjoyed. The carnitas were very popular with my table and I was told they were very good. They even brought little appetizers for us at no charge which were tasty.

Our Open Table reservation was for a special occasion, my 74th birthday. When we arrived there was no mention of a birthday celebration by the hostess or by anyone else as the evening progressed. The special occasion part was missing! Even though our food was good, our server basically ignored us throughout the evening. I understand that they had a large group, however, that is no excuse. This may be a place for a casual lunch, but NOT a place for a special occasion! I expected better!

Service was great. Taco's were amazing (pork and shredded beef) especially at the special Taco Tuesday prices. Was fine for families, a bit of a loud atmosphere. The birthday dessert combo plate was fantastic.

We had a party of 8 and it was obvious from the beginning our server was very annoyed to have a big group. Even though we had a reservation they had us at 2 separate tables. When we insisted they be put together the attitude started. I had to get up and find a server twice to get drinks started. When we still weren't getting any attention I told a manger. From then on, ther server came by regularly, but he gave us dirty looks and snapped at us. The manager never came by to follow up.

We will absolutely never go here again. Service ruined the dinner.
