    What happened to the homemade flour tortillas. They were once big and fluffy now they are just a doilly :( but the cookies at the end are still good. Rachel what were you thinking?

    Get the "skinny margarita" on the rocks. It is so delicious that you'd never guess that it has half the calories of their regular margarita.

    For the brave ones that would like to go one step further than the hotter salsa, ask for the habanero salsa!

    Try the Ensenada style fish tacos. Carne asada tacos supposedly have bacon in them but I could not detect any.

    They will be open through December 31st. So sad that the Irvine Company would not renew their lease.
