Have been to this place several times in different locations. Every time the food has been good and the service friendly and quick. Cocktails were good to. And a reasonably priced menu as well!

We ate here because it had a lot of patrons compared to other places. The food looked good and prices reasonable so we gave it a try. My wife had the Flautas (fried taquitos). I had chipotle spare ribs. The meal was very good.

This is the location in plaza Futura. I only ordered my favorite chicken burrito and it was delish! And the service was good. The sides were some salad plus guacamole, which made it a complete meal along with my local beer. They gave all kinds...More
