    Horny Toad margarita is fantastic. Made the way it should be. Tequila, triple sec, like juice. No sour mix. Delicious and strong.

    Been going downhill ever since it opened. Margaritas are good, but the food isn't worth it.

    The restaurant made hot sauce called Gato Muerto is serious. They aren't kidding around about hot spicy it is. Delicious.

    if you're deciding between here and El Cortijo, come here. One consideration is that you will need to make a reservation much in advance.

    make sure to avoid the curved table at the top of the ramp. The person in the chair has a kitchen view and a light from the hostess station in their eyes. And, the table is freezing on cold nights.
