The location and atmosphere are really unique and it looks like a great Mexican restaurant but it's mediocre. We love Mexican food and eat it all the time so we we're disappointed when the food didn't meet the standard set by the ambiance. The waitress...More

Food was typical Mexican fare, good but not exceptional. Service was good. I thought the beer was overpriced, but I don't know Salt Lake City prices. I liked the decor. It was a little hard to find as it was down an alley.

Good location, down stairs, good service. A little pricey, my rellenos could have been better. The chips had a fried hair split between two of the chips. My husband didn't care for his chicken tacos. It was interesting. At least it wasn't the same old...More

I ordered the chimichanga. A decent portion size and it was tasty. Did not try any of the drink as they are quite expensive. Parking available in the garage next door, and they will validate for 90 minutes.

We are there on a very busy Saturday night but only had about a 15 minute wait to be seated. The food is the best Mexican food I've had in Utah since moving from Arizona. The chimichanga was excellent- not too oily and the beef...More
