Food is ok, neither here nor there when it comes to tex mex kind of cuisine. Staff are hit and miss. Some are great and others very flat, almost miserable. CERTAINLY overpriced for what it is. Better options around.

Great service, food and cocktails. Nothing significant or memorable probably but it was good. It's decor is dated so kinda let's it down but it's an institution so I guess gets away with it?!More
