    SUPER nachos are DELICIOUS. Also try the Caribbean spicy chicken wings and the fried platanos during happy hour. It's a great balance between spicy and sweet.

    Get a mojito with an exotic flavor. The Mango and Blueberry Mojito's was my favorite. But they have several other variety's and they are all delicious. Definitely mix it up a little. T

    Awesome service. Ridiculous mojitos (in a good way).

    Noemi J. · July 16, 2013

    The bright lime- and lemon-colored walls, the DJs blasting electro-Latin music, and the tons of fun young things on the dance floor create one of the best spots in town for shakin’ it. Read more · July 1, 2013

    Restaurant by day, hot latin groove by night. Be prepared for busy crowd during happy hour (til 7:30). Manager (Juanita?) Was great. We will definitely be back again soon.
