    Ready to kick it up a notch? Then try their habanero salsa. I love spice but this is something you really need to be ready for! Fiery delicious!

    The fact that every server wears a red shirt reminds you that at any time they could be killed by the Gorn.

    The food is delicious, but server has dropped the beans on my jeans and all I got for this was a mumbled apology.

    I really think the quality of the service depends on your server, ours was great! Find a good one and I'm sure they'll never serve you wrong. Host stand is rude however. The guacamole is delicious!

    The fajita skillet was so hot that the plate cracked. The manager came by to make sure we were OK (which we were) and told us our dinner was on the house. Top notch food and customer service.

    Much better dining option in Tyson's corner. Sangria and frastini were extremely watered down. I suggest sitting at the bar if getting a cocktail.

    Worst service ever. Bartender forgot my drink, sever forgot everything from hot sauce to to-go boxes. Oh btw, he brought & charged me for something I didn't order. Don't waste your time, food sucks

    Parties greater than 4 splitting checks beware. Our waiter processed our checks one at a time- took about 45 minutes to pay for party of 12. They should probably fix that. Tuna salad was good though.
