    Airport-quality food and prices, but a good place to spend a layover. Service was excellent. (Plus, best gluten-free option in Terminal 5 if you're tired of salads.)

    The margaritas are strong (Mexican approved here). Food is acceptable. Just drink more and you'll be fine!

    Margs were great, Nahid is a great bartender...snarky, bespectacled waiter was a douche

    Perhaps the "real" restaurant in LA has good margaritas and good food, but the airport outpost does NOT. Honestly, you're better off going to McDonald's.

    Good place to people watch. I disagree with the slow service comments but they were not busy at 3:00. Chicken burrito was a bit bland.

    The margaritas are weak and expensive, but passable tasty as long ad you avoid the poison that is Cuervo Gold or 1800.

    Pre-mixed margaritas, not the best. Normal airport prices.

    Food is unexceptional and drinks were even worse. Had to send back my bloody mary, switched it for a margarita and it was awful.
