We arrived before the dinner rush so didn’t have to wait long. Chips and salsa were already on the table when we sat down. The chips were good and the salsa was ok. The salsa was like watered down hot sauce. We had a cheese...More

The food was good and the margaritas were excellent. The atmosphere was nice, but very crowded. The staff were excellent and very quick. However, we had to wait over an hour for a table. Everyone kept saying it was worth the wait, but I'd disagree....More
