This place is an old bar, people said it is where the "margarita cocktail" started. It is a place that you have to know if you are visiting the city.

Heard from others that this place cant be missed. Why wouldn't anyone not stop at a famous margarita drink place? Wait staff was great, bar food was devoured and the mariachi band was very festive. Overall we laughed a lot!

A step back in history to the Prohibition days. This was a popular place when drinking was not allowed in the States. The Tacos were exceptionally good. Atmosphere was pleasant. Drinks were cheap. Margaritas ok not extra ordinary.
