    Didn't think it was authentic at all.With this place being so popular, I have to say I'm very disappointed not to mention it's very over priced. I wish I had something better to say :(

    Here's a tip: get back in your car, & head north on McKnight until you get to Wexford, where you can go to PATRÓN! this place is too expensive & the portion are small.

    Get the queso dip for your tortilla chips. Its about $5 but totally worth it! Their margaritas are muy tasty as well! I've never had any meal there that wasn't worth repeating - try it all! :D
