Had chicken tacos. Everything on the plate was fresh and had good flavor. Especially like the pico de gallo. A good balance of ingredients.

Don't think I will return. Migas were 90% tortillas. 6% tomatoes and onions and 4 % eggs. Not a winner. Several people were enjoying some pretty crazy looking drinks though.

We went with our kids ages 2-15 and everyone enjoyed their meal. The made from scratch tortillas were awesome. The staff was very nice and the atmosphere was nice. We would definitely go back.

Hi there. No it's not relaxing as in quiet. It can get crowded and loud. Margaritas are made with tequila. I'm sure you can ask for the expensive tequila brands if you ask.
