Good God I love this place!! This Mexican restaurant right here is the most authentic place that I have ever had the pleasure of dining in to. Prefect little quiet place for a small group of friends, they also have the most amazing margaritas with different flavors!!

They have so many things in here worth going in here for. This is a perfect place for a small party. They pretty much have everything that you may need if you want Mexican.

Terrible service and bland food

I'm disappointed. The decor is ecclectic and fun, the food is marginal, and the service is horrible. I ordered a salad and it completely lacked flavor. This is the first time I have ever ask to return a dish to order another one. The owner indirectly resisted without outright saying no, When I finally asked if he was telling me no, he said it was fine and brought a taco plate. Unfortunaley, it was kiddie-sizee, but I was charged for a regular size dish. This was the worst sevice I have ever had.

By the way, the replacement also lacked flavor.
