We are sorry to hear this! This is in no way reflective of the awesome, attentive service we work hard to provide. We'll follow up with you directly to get more information.

Staff was helpful and friendly and the food was excellent. Our only disappointment was the fact that it was very loud with it being a bar atmosphere. Other than that we would not hesitate to go back again.

This place is quite busy but there is a reason for that because the food is so good!! The chips and salsa they start you out with is amazing and then you get your entree and it's even better! I got the Surf and Turf...More

The food here was excellent and certainly not run-of-the-mill Mexican fare. I have mixed feelings about this restaurant due to the noise level. The noise was why I gave it a 4 instead of a 5. I knew it was a bar and that it...More

All the food is fresh. Chips and Guacamole is amazing. We tried the Carne Asada, Carnitas, and Polla Asado street tacos. We could have easily gone back for more. Great Atmosphere as well.

We went mid day during the week, so there was no wait. Not a huge place, and the booths are spacious and comfy. We went for the food so I can't comment on the drinks. Large portions for the food. We could have shared an...More

They can go for breakfast or lunch. I don't remember the cut off time, but after a certain time anyone under 21 is not allowed. I think it is 6pm.
