    The chipotle chicken signature dish was awesome! It's enough for two to share. The tableside guacamole is the best!

    Last two times we've been, not enough fajitas when we ordered the botana for 4. Asked for more, that we would pay, and it never showed up. Oh well.

    Good atmosphere...below average food. Generic Mexican food but drink menu is good. Went for Sunday lunch, service was slow abs terrible by a trainer of all people. Much better options in SA to eat.

    This place was a nut house. Tables were WAY to close together. The background music was super loud and the mariachi band was trying to play over them the whole time.

    It's clearly a tourist destination. It's over priced & having to wait an hour for a table is less than ideal. There are better places to go with much better food.

    Please don't order the table side guacamole. The cart is too big to pass through tables w/guests. It's an inconvenience for paying guests to move to make room for the cart while we are trying to eat.

    Make sure you have a drink before you eat the chips so you dont choke and die from an overly pointy chip......

    1/2 price brunch is great, but there's a reason for it. This is when they train their new wait staff. Do not partake if you're in a hurry. Sloooooowww.
