    Happy 55th year Ray Vega! The booths are so dark it's best to sit up front by the bar. Don't forget to order the carnitas and cheese enchilada/chicken taco combo plate while you're at it.

    Great margaritas. The blended coconut is amazing. But the hostess staff is less than friendly and the food isn't anything to rave about. I can get better Mexican food in Tennessee.

    Looking for sexy simple and downright good Mexican...you found it. Enjoy the dimly lit dining room and indulge in any number if great dishes. Guac and ritas are on point.

    Ambiance is nice, but food has gone to hell. Been coming here for 20+ years, but something has changed. Food is just not that good. Waiters are inattentive. Frequently get served the wrong thing.

    Ok, so this used to be a fave, but in recent years the food has taken a downturn. Now it's confirmed, I'm not returning, suffered sickness after eating here. Shame, as I loved the atmosphere :(

    Great atmosphere, the food not so great. I had the avocado salad, lots of iceberg lettuce. The vinaigrette dressing was horrible. A cross between French and vinaigrette dressing. Yuck!

    Horrible. Waiter broke a glass as he was handing us our plates, I had broken glass in my food. Not only did he not apologize, but I had to ask to have my order remade....w/o glass in it.

    Over-hyped, average food - expensive for what you get. Mediocre service. But, did see a movie star while dining. Tortilla soup is better at Baja Fresh.
