    First of all I am outrage by the discrimination in this restaurant. I came in with a group of friends and its summer time so I am wearing a hollister tank top and the restaurant kicked me out WTF

    5 adults &1 child(2yrs)&charged automatic gratuity for 6 people. However, the child did not have a meal. Gratuity came to 21.5%. That did not equal to the service given. Visiting from Washington, DC

    Waited forever. Poor service. Rarely came to refill drinks. No wonder everyone is getting drunk here, the food never comes. Salsa was fantastic. Food was so-so. Expensive for hole-in-the-wall Mexican.
