    Unclear about reservations and what allows you to make one. I watched a bar tender eat one of my fries before he gave them to me. The food sucks. Dance club was fun. Anthony the door man is adorable.

    Not as good as years past, but seviceable Mexican fare on the boardwalk. If what you're ordering has a sauce, be sure to get it on the side or your meal will be submerged.

    They have some good Mexican food. I love their quesadillas and their nacho appetizers. They make good sangria margaritas. Despite it being on the Jersey Shore, it's a good place to go to.
