This is a pretty cool place to experience. If you want a quiet dinner where you can talk to your guests, this is not the place for you. The music on Friday nights gets very loud from around 8 pm. The food is okay, Nothing...More

I took a chance and had the Mexican Tequila Beef Burger, salsa, jalapeños, cheese and an amazing chipotle aioli with a shot of tequila on the side! Man was I surprised at how good this burger was! Will be in my top 10 for sure!
