    Bad service & mediocre food. It took a 1/2 hour to get our food order. Send 2 plates back, order was wrong on 1 & other undercooked chicken. Been coming here since the 70's. Last night's was the last.

    The arroz con pollo and the IP Alaska beer is the BOMBDOTCOM and Jenie the bartender is the nicest person here :)

    The machaca burrito is full of flavor, some zest but not spicy. A lot of good food at a very very reasonable price. Good atmosphere as well!

    Stay as far away as you possibly can from fish taco. Unwrapped the foil and first the smell got me. Still wanted to try it though:smelly pieces of unidentified mess. Over salted. Sent it back.

    The food was delicious I believe they make there own corn tortilla loved the enchiladas. Music in three different dining areas lots of fun.

    Absolutely adore this place! Great atmosphere, great margs, great food!! :) but... Based on many experiences, you'll never get salt on your margarita. Ever. One random downside. :P

    Don't get the sangria. Stick to margaritas and beer.

    If you're coming here to dance be prepared for a very small dance floor

    The only thing better than horseback riding in Griffith Park is having margaritas after horseback riding in Griffith Park.

    Hmm. Country music records hanging from ceiling and mostly white folks dining. Not sure on the authenticity...
