We visited for dinner one night. It was near our hotel and seemed to have pretty good reviews. Chips and salsa were very good. I had the black bean patties. The description made them sound wonderful, with sides of rice and vegetables. In reality, they were small, rather dry, and lacked much flavor. Very small portions of rice and greasy vegetables. Husband had jerk fish tacos. He said the seasoning was good. Average margarita.

Great service. Excellent tequila menu & drinks. Happy hour 3-6 with food specials also. Can be very busy during the season. Big parking lot to accommodate during high season. Menu is varied with focus on Latin American food. Fajita plates are huge, easy to split for 2 people. Great décor.

Good food, great drinks, and friendly service. It's a bit off the main strip but has excellent parking. Large burritos.

We stopped there for lunch one warm day. The restaurant was way too cold. We had to put jackets on to enjoy our meal. The chips and salsa were very good. The guacamole did not taste homemade. It tasted more like something you could buy in a supermarket. I definitely wouldn't recommend it. Stick with the free chips and salsa. Both of our meals were very good and we would go back again as long as the place didn't freeze us out.

Good. It was better than most. Chips and salsa are good. Wet burrito was drowning. There was some creepy statues, but that did not ruin it.
