We were very surprised by the way our family was treated on a busy Sunday evening. Outdoor tables were full when our group fo 6 walked up. We asked the waiters for a table outside and were told we would be next in line. 20 minutes later we had no table and the wait staff had made no attempt to try and put together tables for our group.
During our wait a significant number of diners in parties of 2 and 4 had been seated at tables where we could have been seated. When we brought this to the staffs attention we got a great deal of ""I don't care"" and a double dose of ""go get lost"". When we were finally seated at an in door table, the ambient noise was too loud for conversations across the table.
After being seated, a ""new"" waiter took our food and drink orders and then disappeared. We did not see him again as other staff members brought drinks and chips to the table. After a lengthy wait, during which all our drinks went dry (including glasses of water), our waiter finally re- appeared. We asked for new drinks, water and chips and then did not see our ""waiter"" again until he brought our check.
It was a busy night but the overall attitude of ""I don't give a flip"" made our evening a great disappointment.
The food is great and the Texas Margaritas are fantastic! The only thing about this place that isn't great is the check out. They need a better system. Sometimes you can wait to pay your bill for 15 + minutes because the line to pay is so long. Food is great though!

We've eaten here about 4 times in the last few months. Last time was in May07. We arrived around lunch time as many other people starting coming in. We had no problem finding a good seat. Chips and salsa were immediately put on our table (I think the servers grab the chips and salsa when they see you get out of the car). I ordered the Veggie Paella. Huge portion of food for the price. It was very tasty, just a little too much curry for my liking but still it was very good! The servers work the place as a team so you are never left wanting for anything.

Nice casual place, especially to sit outside on a warm evening. Good and inexpensive margaritas! The food is pretty good, being from Denver I have had SW pretty authentic stuff. Salsa is great and guac has been excellent and fresh the evenings I have been there.
