The bar area is small but comfortable, and service was attentive but got a couple of our beer orders incorrect. Not a big deal we’re not picky. Their guacamole was amazing though! Salsa spicy and tasty!!

This is a fun Mexican restaurant which has been around for 30+ years. I met my wife there. The gold frozen margaritas are the best ever! The food is good and fun for small groups of 10-20 people. Live music Thursday to Saturday.

Though it pained me to go inside in such a lovely day we did so and had yummy margaritas. The stained glass windows, good service, lovely tile work and interior plants with so much light from above made this a nice spot.
