    Phoenix Magazine says this is the best Happy Hour in Phoenix, which is everyday from 4pm - 6:30pm. Enjoy $4 win and margaritas or $2.50 domestic beers. Also, try the tacos.

    Host staff is atrocious. Entire restaurant is open yet you are required to wait for a seat. Nothing amazing about food or prices that makes up for such poor management.

    Good selection of reasonably priced tequila, but for something with a little more of an edge, try one of the mescals. Mescal tastes like scotch and tequila got busy and made an awesome baby.

    Terribly slow service, overpriced food and a confusing menu. Patio seats are uncomfortable & 2 hours for a drink & appetizers is a problem.
