“Great margaritas, average food”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

The margaritas make up for the average tex-mex food here. They are excellent! It's not your typical "El ...." food, so I was excited for something different. But every time, it's just sorta bland and "eh." They do have an awesome deck/patio out back with fans that's relaxing.

“Wasn't worth the 55 minute wait...”
Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

The food & drinks were ok, the staff a bit snobbish towards customers. Probably will not go back. Also finding a parking space was horrid. There's a lot of Mexican restaurants in St. Louis that are a lot better in price and friendliness !

“Great Mexican in the heart of Kirkwood”
Reviewed 12 February 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Everything you'd expect from a nice Mexican restaurant plus a few pleasant surprises, too! Margaritas are really good; I order mine shaken and strained into a salted martini glass. Kids menu is available. Outdoor seating is available in season. The Mojo Shrimp is out of the ordinary, with a spicy kick from a chipotle adobo puree that is out of this world.

“Just OK”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

Went on a busy Friday night...drove around for 15 minutes trying to find a parking spot in downtown Kirkwood. I know they have many public parking lots, they were all full and this was a pain on a cold, icy night. Thought the 40 minute wait was fine (expected it). Food was fine but nothing special. Food came out VERY quickly. We found the side dishes (rice, black beans, etc.) bland. Margaritas were good. Had to ask (repeatedly) for more salsa or refills of water, etc.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Very good Mexican food for the Midwest. Steak, shrimp, and chicken fajitas were excellent! The lime dressing is addicting! Great service and atmosphere.
