Went with friends from work, since some of us came down early for our meeting. $7 margaritas were good. I was happy with the food, steak quesadilla. My colleagues were not had happy with their choices. We also went back on Tuesday night for more drinks and the place seemed pretty busy, but no issues getting quick service.

I have to say I was surprised by how good the food was. The guacamole and salsa was excellent. My wife had the chicken fajita which she said it was amazing. I had something off their special menu "Dragon Flautas" The only way I can describe it is its a Mexican sushi roll using tortillas filled with steak and shrimp... More

This place is soooo cooool! just stop by to look inside and you will see what i mean. The seating is all comfortable and there isnt a bad seat in the place. The Margarita will knock your socks off and the signature burrito is huge. A must try if near by.

Have been here a few times. We have learned to just order the everything nachos which we usually looove. We have had some of the other food and not worth the price. This time the nachos were not up to speed. It is a hefty price at 18.00 but with all of the meat, etc. on it it is usually... More

I found the bartenders to be on their game the two times I visited but this time I ate dinner as well. I didn't find the food to be exceptional but it was pretty decent. I guess the fault I had was with the guacamole rather than my dinner. Just wasn't my favorite but again, nothing bad. The interior is... More

I feel like the staff is always prepping for a monster party which takes away from some of the rustic charm and decent menu. On slow days, it's a great place to have a drink and enjoy their huge pile of nachos. I've never seen it busy but I try to avoid the casino on the weekends. The food comes... More

Atmosphere and food were excellent. The waitstaff was horrible. Part of any enjoyable experience starts and ends the personality of the server. Ours was sadly lacking

We ended up at The Scorpion Bar after roaming the hotel for about 30-35 minutes. This, for us, was the best place to enjoy some nightlife and have a few drinks. The place is beautiful and laid back. Although this place is not too big, you can still do some dancing, stand by the bar, or enjoy the go-go dancers.... More

Ok, I don't expect a lot from this place, but I have been twice, 2 years apart and their vegetable burrito is the best I have had. It is just the right amount of tortilla and vegetable, and is so massive I can only eat half. We also got the special Avocado Chili dip and it was a great combination-... More
