The service is excellent and the food is delicious.
It is a BYOB, bring your own liquor to add to the non alcoholic Margaritas. The homemade mango fruit juice is flavorful.

We waited for our waiter for 25 minutes after being seated, my husband had to finally go up to the hostess and ask for service. It took another 20 minutes to get salsa and chips, dinner came before getting salad. Waiter never came back to check on us after bringing dinner. We had to go up to the hostess to pay our bill since we got tired of waiting. Worst service ever!

Food was excellent, but the entrée came before we even got our drinks and they never served us to salad because of timing issues in the kitchen. They gave it to us to go. However staff was very friendly, food was really good and I will try one more time.

Enjoyed trying out a different Mexican place. Three tasty salsas. Loved their queso fundido app and will be back for it again. Fajitas had lots of fixings, enchiladas were tasty. Didn’t care for the lukewarm refried beans, no black beans, or the dry fluffy rice. Could have loved the generous frozen virgin margarita, but the salt from the salt-rimmed glass had ruined the drink. Friendly waitress made the experience nice.

First time here, but not the last.
The food was fresh and authentic., the waiter was excellent, and the casual atmosphere pulled together the whole evening. It is a BYOB, however they make excellent virgin margaritas that we just added liquor. This is a hidden gem.

The food was fantastic. Our waitress was great, but totally swamped. She was serving tables inside and out which meant we sat there with no drinks, no refills, and needed items for WAY too long. Our meal also took forever. We were no longer very hungry by the time our food finally came out. It would make more sense to have some servers dedicated to outside and some for inside.

Service was very poor. It was a hot day and waiter just gave us water without ice. We had to ask him. He never came even once to ask if everything was okay or we need anything. When we ordered dessert he forgot to put the order in and we waited 17min. After that we asked for check. He took the bill and went to the counter. Never came back, we waited 15min. He started taking other people’s order and started getting their food. We had to get up and go to the counter to pay. There were people who came after us and were done eating and gone. Worse service ever.

Food was amazing. Service was a little slow, which we would have been fine with except we were with young kids and they got very restless. That being said, we would go back again in a heartbeat. The staff was so nice and the food was excellent!

I took my sister out to celebrate her graduating college. We were both pleasantly surprised by the food and quality; everything was seasoned to perfection and left us both wanting more. The shrimp/mango ceviche and crab/avocado was the perfect starters to our meals.

Very good high end Mexican food in a quaint indoor & outdoor setting. Went early on a Saturday night so no trouble with a reservation but needed if dining later in evening. BYOB with many diners bringing their own Tequila to add to some of the exotic NA fruit drinks.
Definitely going back.
