    Went off the menu for a margarita with reposado tequila and it was undrinkable. "Queso" was a hunk of fried/melted cheese...you could literally play frisbee with it. That's not queso!

    I love the tequila selection, but they have to get something better than Maker's Mark in for bourbons, and the wine was cheap

    My least favorite Mexican place. Only go here with work. The slowest service ever!!! Lunch menu is pretty decent but you will be there for an 1-2 hrs due to slow service

    Food sucks. Much better Mexican at many other places. Chef lacks basic techniques on simple dishes. Overly salty and bland is unacceptable especially for spicy dimensional Mexican cuisine.

    Similar to Bull&Bear and Public House, music is better though and obviously larger venue...but same type of crowd.

    If you are looking for a 'traditional' Mexican restaurant this is not it! This is more 'Mexican fusion'.

    Never accommodating... Rude and pushy. Be prepared to stand in a crowded bar with every table "reserved" - awful.

    One of my favorite nightspots. Feeling a bit crowded? Head upstairs. There's a full bar up there and much more room to move around.
