    The owner verbally assaulted us while trying to eat dinner - made a huge public scene - scolded us for complaining about our cold meals... I'VE NEVER BEEN SO POORLY TREATED IN A RESTAURANT EVER!!!!!

    Run the other way! The owner is a nasty witch of a woman - her staff hates her too

    The tacos are fantastic! Waiters & waitresses are all awesome! Nachos are great too! You're not ready for the Black Margarita... lol!

    The food is good and somewhat more authentic... That's not the issue. The service is terrible and they can be very rude especially when it's crowded on a Friday night. Get in and get out.

    The fish tacos are amazing! Also get their hot salsa.

    Not very good. They crowd people together when they aren't busy, instead of spacing them out. We waited 20 minutes to order, when we were the only people in sight and it took forever to get our food.
