Arrived near the end of service time, but they seated us and treated us very well. Food was fast and absolutely delicious. House special Kobe skirt steak was perfectly cooked, shrimp cocktail (pictured) was a great Southwest twist on a seafood dish, mac n cheese was a non-gooey version but still super tasty, and the steak burrito was super flavorful with tender steak. Great spot!

I found this restaurant to serve excellent food but a little expensive . Very different selections with a southwest flavor. I've been here to eat probably 5 times and have had great food every time with good waiters . The problem is they are often crowded and they get too busy to provide attentive services. The bar offers women half price drinks or speciality drinks which I find this to be a little discriminatory.
Their bar is very over priced on the drink selections and the bar staff often has an attitude like they are doing you a favor to wait on you . But it's with a night there fir a special occasion but make reservations .

Dinner was terrific. Lobster nachos are a must have. And save room for the bread pudding!!!!! Good, lively atmosphere and music.

We went to some okay places to eat in Fort Lauderdale, but were so happy when we found this place. The ambiance is cool, the servers are so nice and the food is ridiculous! We got two small plates which were amazing, and an entree each which were both so good. We had the bread pudding for dessert and it was out of this world. You have to go here if you're looking for some delicious food.

Big fan of the Prickly Pear margarita.
Stuffed Jalapeno's are excellent.
Smaller restaurant, so the wait can turn into a few prickly pears.
