Service slightly below average. Food ok. Located in the heart of Guadalajara. Visual ambiance is nice but the blaring speakers blasting out the latest soccer game prohibited casual conversation. Find another without the big screens.

Reasonable prices and good food. Got us a table for 20 without booking. However they forgot to bring us brownies that we ordered and tried to charge probably because that one waiter didn't understand english.

Does the best margaritas in town. Downstairs is rather cavernous but upstairs is fun with little balconies over the street. Live music can be ear splitting or genuine Mexican depending on your viewpoint. Great Sopa Azteca
