    Chicken Enchiladas were perfectly flavored. Big enough portion to be shared. blood orange marg downstairs was better than the drinks upstairs. View on middle floor just as good as top floor.

    Ask for the home made hot sauce. Comes in a Corona bottle and has a nice kick to it.

    Pro-tip: Blood orange margarita is delicious! Served in a pint glass and only available downstairs. Get it yourself and bring it to the dinner table!

    Go here for brunch. The view on the roof is spectacular. The food is wonderful and the prices are very very good. If you're really feeling good, get a pineapple vanilla margarita.

    Rooftop is great, and love the ambiance, but food is nothing to write home about. It's ok - but I've had better tacos. I'd go back for drinks and the view, but not if I'm hungry & looking for food.

    The view doesn't come close to making up for the mediocre, overpriced food and sub par service. Check out Calexico down the road for some good Mexican.

    Children need encouragement. So if a kid gets an answer right, tell him it was a lucky guess. That way, he develops a good, lucky feeling.
