    Good for a pre-movie dinner.

    The food is pretty tasty, but not visually appealing as you can see. The service is slow, but the person handing out chips, salsa & drinks is fast. Salsa could be spicier, but I like the thickness.

    Liked the food! Didn't like not being told that table-side guac involved an extra charge. Not thrilled with idling for 20 minutes because only the manager could process my coupon. Fine!... but flawed.

    One of the few places which serves Veggie burrito with rice which is not cooked in meat broth.

    They have a vegetarian menu!

    Food is good, but I would suggest going to the bar and kitchen and getting it yourself. Every time the service gets worse. Today we've been here 15mins. The servers look at us then walk away.

    Guacamole is great. Queso is awful. It's a solid lump of greasy cheese. Really nasty.

    Idk the food wasn't that great. Plus the service wasn't the greatest.

    The service in the bar area is TERRIBLE. We sat for 20 minutes before we finally gave up & ordered at the bar with the bartender.

    The ceviche is the bomb! So is the Salmon Ensalada. Yum!

    Happy hour gets half price appetizers at the bar!

    Their Mexican rice and refried beans are the best anywhere!

    Great Mexican food and great, timely service! We love this place because after lunch we can go to the movies next door!

    Great service and knowledgeable! I had never tasted mole sauce and he got me a small bowl to try with my chips! Found out it is delicious!! Generally a "Now" Groupon available.

    Gotta try the orange basil mojitos

    Correction: they left the soup on the original bill (so I guess I'd pay for it if I'd left cash?) But didn't charge my card for it. App sampler description says it includes "corn ramaleS"

    Service was bad (took forever to get water and longer to get refills), soup was awful (sent it back after 2 bites and they still charged me for it), sampler platter was so-so. Not recommended!

    Dallas Bryson · June 24, 2011

    They have a whole vegetarian menu!

    Haven't had customer service this bad in a while. They aren't normally this bad, must be a busy night.

    Went here for lunch the other day, had a good quesadilla. Their chips were really addictive, I couldn't stop eating them!

    Go during off-peak hours. The service was fine and the chicken fajita salad even better! #primal

    Delightful service, delicious food. Try the guacamole!

    this food wasn't worth the wait or the lousy service.

    Matt Lopez · July 19, 2010
  • Erick H.

    Food is worth it I you can get past the poor service. Been here a few times an I'm always "forgotten." Drinks go empty, service is slow, and you wait forever for the check. And they canceled brunch!
