    Good food, awesome drinks quick and friendly staff. Depending what day of the week you come you might be able to listen to some live music just pray they don't have karaoke night

    Chicken rollitos are SO good... So are the tequila lime wings... And the Latin Passion frozen drink is my favorite!

    Service is just as good Tom Cruises sanity. Don't bother coming here, you'll end up eating cat food and being served by people with the personality of a NO.2 pencil. But drinks are ok? :)

    Southwest Baja Rolls were awsome. Carne Asada was pretty good. Good fajitas. Lava flow is bomb.

    The appetizer, Tijuana Taxi, is huge! Get it with a group of people. Probably don't need dinner. Goes well with margaritas. :)

    Hoping at some point soon they decide to finally remove the dusty bottles of cheap wine/beer hanging above the bar that add nothing to the decor/atmosphere...

    Was told the kitchen was closed, yet the couple that got here after us has a nice quesadilla in front of them. Leaving and never coming back.

    For all the hype, I expected cold margs with fresh juice instead of warm margs made from sour mix several hours ago.

    Food was terrible. Salsa tasted old and a ton of onions. Fajitas were so salty couldn't eat meat by itself. Drink we ordered was way too sweet, not drinkable.
