    Chicken mole is good. Decent Mexican food but not the best in town.

    Make sure to show any check-in promos prior to getting the bill. Spent $100 and they wouldn't even take $10 off for the happy hour special.

    Rainbow margaritas are awesome (although VERY pricey... we had a Groupon so it was worth it), guac was bland. Ordered pork tamales to go... got home & they were beef & super dry.

    If you are a student call and ask for the shuttle. It is free and they just ask that you tip the driver. Once you get there ride the pepper!

    Worst lunch service in a long time. One server for the entire restaurant. Half the food for my table was forgotten. No apologies from anyone. The saving grace of my experience was the kind bus boy.
