Very average Mexican food served in an enormous facility located in Riverside Square an upscale Bergen County shopping mall. Great quacamole made table side and decent Mexican food. Full bar, plenty of parking, friendly servers and high prices round out this restaurant.

Considering this is a commercial chain, i did not have high expectations. But the food was pretty good, Skirt steak stake was delicious, the only negative its pretty expensive and I don't think the food justifies the cost. But overall its good.

The 160-seat restaurant features a spacious bar and lounge area, as well as outdoor and private dining options. Under the creative direction of architect and designer Timothy Higgins, the decor features vibrant colors such as vivid pink, deep maroon, rich butterscotch and warm yellow. Traditional craftwork and adornments include Oaxacan wood carvings of mythical animals, custom wax-dipped artwork, Mayan Indian textiles, and folk art masks. Tortillas are fresh-made on-site at a station featuring colorful tiles and a hammered copper hood.
