Although it’s off the beaten path, south of town it’s worth the trip. The service was phenomenal. All entrees were perfect! Never had a margarita made from fresh lime juice. Be sure to make a reservation.

We didn't take pictures either. What you see is what you get. It is VERY nice. But you go in wearing whatever. They don't care. (They'll also give you bug spray if you need it since it is an open air place.)
