    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...

    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? :)

    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.

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