When I looked at the extensive menu posted outside the restaurant, I was looking forward to lunch. We were greeted and seated right away, and handed the lunch and drink menus. There were about 100 different drinks and maybe 10 options for food, none of which I was thrilled about. I ordered the chicken fajitas, my husband got the only enchiladas on the menu. There were no chips and salsa brought to the table or offered, and we did not ask. The food came pretty quickly. As I said, I ordered the fajitas, but I should have said fajita, it came with 1 lukewarm, chewy tortilla and was covered in chopped chives, which were not in the description, and I do not like. My husband said his meal was fine, he loves Mexican food, "fine" is not good. The prices did not seem unreasonable until we tasted the food. Maybe dinner is better than lunch, but we won't be going back to find out.

This is a warm, welcoming place with carefully made sauces, fresh fresh seafood. Margaritas are perfect, try the ceviche, the moles, the guacamole in the molcajete. Service is uniformly good. Great for families, but i have come here alone and still felt comfortable. My kids love the agua frescas and the tasty horchata milk drink when they have it.

Marguaritas are expensive but great, food is good, but when our party of four asked for more chips we were charged $1.00. Admittedly, not much, but still, it was that small thing that we remembered, not the great food or good service.

Great food and tequila. if you love mole sauce this place has 3 different kinds I had the their traditional mole and it was delicious. The have a big tequila selection including Grand Patron. The sangria is excellent too. The food price are reasonable. The restaurant is not loud, you can have a conversation. We will try this place again when we are back in the area .
