“got rejected for table because I'm black - seriously”
Reviewed 13 October 2011

I just tried to go there yesterday. It was OBVIOUSLY open, there were 3 people outside recruiting diners. Nobody sitting outside. So I start to sit down and make contact with the head waiter / manager. He says something complex (my spanish is basic) so I asked him if it wasn't open and he nodded yes. So I said okay - even though it was an obvious lie. I went like 50 feet away where they couldn't see me. Literally two minutes later three white american girls go right up and get seated. I'm black, of course. I went back and gave him a piece of my mind. These guys are scum, avoid them.

“avoid this restaurant”
Reviewed 27 August 2010

The worst food I have eaten in Mexico.
The arrachera steak was tough, my wife's chicken was terrible.
Unfortunate, a great location, wasted.
DOES not accept credit cards either.
