    Everything is AMAZING! Seriously try their specials. Everything I've ever had always has a great flavor and is perfectly cooked. Service is always great too. Plus there is a good atmosphere!

    Went to this place in Dallas three times I loved it so much. The guacamole was fantastic and healthy tasting. They make it in front of you. Their drinks are great. Great food menu too. Very unique.

    Best brunch I have ever had! Heck best buffet, breakfast, etc. I've ever had. A bit pricey at $20 each person, but worth it!

    Amazing happy hour and some delicious half price appetizers to go with it. Have one (or six) and sober up all in the same place. –James, The A-List: Dallas

    The Avocado and Portabello fries were great, the Paella was wonderful and my waitress Teri was awesome!

    Parking Is a problem. $10 is a bit steep to come to Happy Hour. Too much sun at window and flies. But good side is JP and Alex are great bartenders.

    Had a spiced rum and coke 3 different times from the same 2nd floor bar, served in 3 different glasses, with varying amounts of alcohol. It wasn't that busy but the bartender seemed out of it.

    Hour and a half wait for a "table", but no wait at all for a table on the 2nd floor terrace. Full service, full menu. On a nice evening, hard to beat.

    Had the 100% margarita and Yucatan fish tacos, tacos were amazing but dish is a bit small. Margarita, a bit too sweet.

    I agree with Scott P. the half moon booths are horrible, bit the guac and pork enchilada made up for it.

    Do not put the Lobster Tacos on your head - your tongue will slap your brains out trying to get to them.

    No decent parking nearby on Saturday night. You must valet. It's only $10 when you leave.

    Try the meatloaf and avoid the half-moon booths. The seats are worn and make any person need a booster.

    They put tons of salt on the rims of their margaritas. I crave that mineral.

    Rather than charge us a set price per person, they roped us into a contract (over the phone) that forced our group to end up paying $43.75 per person for a fajita buffet. Beware #NCA Cheerleaders!!!

    Brought a party of 11 to the restaurant. They would not seat us together. They were not helpful at all and made rude comments that were over heard by our group. We went across the seat.

    Try the Lobster Tacos - @Iron_Cactus lobster tacos are just as good up in Dallas as in Austin. Consistency is key.

    we split the Yucatan Fish Tacos so we'd have room for Tres Leches and both were OMG good!

    Go for the margaritas! Any place that uses processed cheese on lobster tacos should be scolded! And not tipped.
