We stopped in for a quick bite and everything was delicious. Best guacamole I've ever had. Friendly service in a authentic Mexican restaurant. Really enjoyed it and I'd recommend.

The guacamole is the best I have ever had! Staff are fun and friendly. Mexican beers and cocktails flowing - cocktails are strong! Food is delicious and the price point is extremely good value for what you get.

Outstanding restaurant. We primarily went for appetizers. Their chicken nachos are like no other. There was a thin layer of tortillas on the bottom of the platter and then beautiful toppings especially the chicken. I am still talking about them. We also had the Cazulitas...which were good. It was happy hour. We had to try their margaritas which were very good. You could taste the tequila. I look forward to visiting again.More

Love the healthy options but that it still tastes amazing - you can get whole wheat tortilla, brown rice, option to grill fish tacos. Great with kids, good portion sizes and relatively affordable.

Bland food, Luke warm. Super burrito did not have guacamole and sour cream - they said it was inside and it wasn’t. Pre-mixed margarita in a big tank - unfriendly service

Extremely bad service and bad good, needed to argue to get a recomandation for beer, overlooked bad hygiene by the servers when they eat in the restaurant and not washing hands after licking their fingers. Also the server Asked me to write down my pin...code which is totally unacceptable. Would not recommend anyone to go thereMore

Stopped by for late breakfast, it was very tasty. Service was quick and nice, albeit a bit distracted the one time we were there. The coffee was amazing. It is hard to find decent coffee in the US :-)

Don't get the reviews on this place at all. The food was average or less than average, the service was unfriendly and they use lemonade to make the margaritas.
