The location is great, but the food is just okay. Drinks are good and the bar upstairs has a great view. The first time I went here about 10 minutes after we ordered, the server accidentally dropped a huge tray of drinks on someone in our party (like 10 drinks - beer, cocktails, soda). The only thing they offered her was a t-shirt to change into. It wasn't the best way to handle the situation. Luckily the next time I went back it wasn't as crowded so no spilled drinks. With so many great places nearby, it's not my first choice for dining.

This is a great place. We’ve eaten here a few times on visits to the area and it’s always excellent. Their second floor deck area has a busy bar and great ambiance. It’s a fun place to eat. Even when they’re busy service is excellent, and they do an excellent job making families with children feel welcome. Several good beers are on tap, the wine list is extensive, and they have a full menu page of mixed drinks. Best of all, the food is just excellent. One of the best Mexican restaurants ever.

READ BEFORE EATING THERE!!! I ate there on 3.14.11 and my bill came up too 60 dollars. I went home and my card was charged 96.00, 28.00 and 69.00. None of the amounts that i actually signed for! Plus when i called my bank i found out my card was ran 3 times on that monday and 2 times on tuesday. Which this meal ended up debting almost 200 dollars from my account. Then while trying to call the restaurant to contact them about the matter the phone number listed isn't correct!! the food was decent but not worth the trouble ... NEVER going there again!!!!! SHADEY BUSINESS!!!

Service was great, food even greater. I took my girlfiend here on a friday night around 9pm, and was pleased at the service we received for such a busy night. Atmosphere was lively, thanks to the bar at the other end of the resturaunt, with the food matching the service. Oh, and this is my first review.

Not really what I would call a great restaurant. It is a nice place to sit down and eat but the food is not what is expected for the price.

horrible horrible service. we are locals and brought some out of town guests to this supposed "up and coming" restaurant. we were sat at our table and the waitress did not take our order for drinks for ten minutes. then for our food order was another ten minutes just to find out that the waitress did not put the order in for another ten minutes. we waited for forty five minutes for our food and drinks to arrive. mind you we had two very hungry children and a toddler. this was on a casual sunday and not busy at all. my husband went to order a beer from the bar in the meantime and bartender was rude and said he had no time to pop open a beer bottle. there was no apology or any compensation for our misery. did i mention the same bad service happened to me twice on different occasions? never never again will i go to this joke of restaurant. don't waste you time, literally.

Ahhh...mazing!!! I am a Mexican food addict and it takes a lot to impress me. This place was incredible. We ordered 4 different items off of the menu and all were outstanding. Service was amazing as well!!!
