Was walking into Fajita Republic and found out that El Dinamita is now closed. There is a nice bar there now where you can have a nice cocktail while waiting to get into Fajita Republic.

The shrimp cooked in Brandy was to die for. Best I’ve ever had. We also had a lava dish. So amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant. I can’t wait to go back in February.

Great outdoor restaurant. This was perfect as the weather was spectacular. Sitting outdoors under the stars was amazing. The margaritas were very strong and tasty.
