    They have a very good selection of tequilas, but the menu is geared for gringos that are afraid of spicy food. The pozole was very disappointing.

    The breakfast buffet is pretty good. There are few options to choose from but everything is actually really tasty.

    Idk what happened. We got seated right away but we never had our food order taken. We waited and waited then went and got the check and paid it.

    The ambiance, patio, staff attitude & drink menu were all great, but the food was terrible. Nothing met expectations. Steak was chewy, mahi-mahi in tacos dry & guacamole bland. I'll not be back.

    Do not miss out on the carnitas bean dip, or the jalenpeno chimichangas for starters. The daily special is the way to go here, always a fresh creation from the chef.
