A super neat atmosphere, great selection of food and drinks. We really loved that there was a fiesta menu so we could get a big serving of guacamole. There were 6 of us and we didn’t finish it. That’s how big it is. Everything tasted...More

I’ve been wanting to check this place out for months now, and I finally made it. I love the ambiance here, it reminds me of the blue velvet in Hollywood without the velvet pictures. I only had the skinny margarita and it’s one of the...More

We went there in 10 people, we asked for a table and the hostess was very rude and unpolite... She treated us in a very bad way, and even if there were some free tables, she told us that since we didn't make the reservation,...More

We visited this place for dinner while in San Diego after trying a flight at Ballast Point. The food was good, the margaritas were strong, and the interior decor was cool. Decent place to try if you're in the area.
