    Shrimp bisque is fantastic! Creamy w/ a nice spicy kick. Then head to the bar, ask for Matt & sip on a perfectly mixed tequila cocktail! He can make anything u want...even if its not on the menu ;)

    There is something Twin Peaks-ish about this place. Its not only trio of dips and salsas, red color chips, gigantic burritos, smoked salmon queasadillas and margaritas in a pineapple.

    really dark inside, which is good if you are ugly like me lol I really enjoy going here. Also in the darkness if you order pina colada you look a bit girly so you can hide in the shadows with it

    Quite the good little Mexican joint in LA! Don't let the sketchy looking outside deceive you; this place is classy & upscale, and Tom is an excellent server!

    Ask for the recession margarita for a cheaper off the menu version that will kick you in the ass for about $6 last time I checked..

    They have the best salmon quesadilla. Also you HAVE to get the velvet margarita.

    Careful with where you park on Cahuenga, it's pretty territorial with the valets; ample parking lots within a 3 block radius. Start with the house salad and margarita, they're excellent.

    Awesome margaritas and well tequila that goes down smoothly? It's too good to be true. Kinda. The wait time for a table is nuts and the parking is a nightmare. Watch for black woman screaming Read more
