    They made a mistake, acknowledged it, and then said we are charging you for it. First time that has ever happened to us. Service was terrible which ruined our experience. The only bright spot was the people we were there with & their Margarita’s.

    Our 2nd time. Everything was just perfect. We ordered 2 entrees and 3 dishes for 3 people. The cocktail drinks are superb. Of course we will repeat this experience again.

    Overall, a pretty average experience. I think the most disappointing part was how rushed we were to vacate our table. I appreciate that restaurants have a turn around but this was speedy. We were being asked what we wanted for dessert before we had finished our main meals and the bill was delivered before we had finished eating. We were hoping to enjoy another drink, try some of the tequila but sadly we were rushed out before given a chance!

    Food was great, we ordered el pastor tacos. But our server was annoying, as he kept roaming around us and then kicked us out while some were still having their dinner.
