I never like giving a bad review unless it's deserved, and this is one. I've eaten here years ago and it was "good"; the concept the owners had when they opened in 2006 was great, and so was the food. Since then there have been...More

The restaurant has an exotic decor and menu to match. I've been there several times and always enjoyed tasting unconventional offerings. It's obvious from the line of people lined up for the 5pm opening that it's very popular.

Farm to table delicious Mexican food! The smoked chicken enchiladas are delightful! Daily specials highlight local produce. Wonderful!

The margaritas are awful; the choices are not many; the food is not tasty, nor is it really either Mexican or Tex-Mex. With another excellent Mexican restaurant in town, why go here? We won't again.

This is a cozy mexican restaurant with great fresh food and good drinks. The menu varies but always has the same favorites. The place is packed and never as to advertise or even have a sign that can be seen.
