Dropped in late afternoon on a walking tour of Old Town Scottsdale and got lucky that it was happy hour with half prices drink and appetizer specials. The food is high quality with tons of choice. There is a wall of 100 tequilas too.

I had the cheese dip which I really enjoyed as well as the red salsa which was not really spicy. I had one Diablo shrimp taco that was advertised as hot but that was a complete under statement as there was no heat. The service at the bar was good. Attentive and quick!

This place is a great drinking, meeting friends place. In terms of food, it was average at best which was the sentiment of all in our party, Great margaritas and prices and the wait staff is friendly and fast!

We were killing time before checking into the classic Hotel Valley Ho nearby. It was just before 3 when Happy Hour started. Great Margaritas and the half price appies were tasty and plentiful. (Have very strong opinions on places that offer 1/2 price then give you half the portion.) Was a tad loud inside but totally manageable.

Atmosphere was energetic and at times load but not overly so. Tequila and Margaritas are... More

We were recommended to this as a great mexican restaurant. It is not. The margaritas were good, but our food wasn't. Our server Erik was nice.

This is the 3rd or 4th time that we've been here. Each time weaver had their guacamole & quesadilla. Yummy! The restaurant can get crowded fast, and understandably so. If it's good, people are going to keep coming, so don't expect a quiet atmosphere. We'll keep returning!

Good Tex-Mex, full bar that you can eat at without reservations (it was a Friday night). The decor is somewhat eclectic (cluttered) but it adds to a very youthful atmosphere.

If you love Tequila, this is the place for you with 100 different Tequilas. But the food was nothing special. I had the Dos Tacos and had the Agi Tuna and the Tinga Taco. They were ok and the Tuna was good but otherwise not at all flavorful. More of a bar atmosphere. The margaritas were decent. I had the... More
