Service was just ok. However, if you want good mexican food in Madras, this is the place to go. It is a little spendy, so just be aware.

Description
New restaurant in little Madras serving fresh, gourmet Mexican and tantalizing margaritas. The food is unusual, beautifully presented and the owner is a gem. Cost is very reasonable. Meals are quite large (enough for 2).
