“Good for Family Dining.”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

The decor was typical Mexico by way of Disney, that you would find in a casino. The place was pretty spacious and there were lots of families eating there with small children and baby's. Even though the restaurant is on the border between Silver Legacy and Circus Circus it is definitely a Circus Circus restaurant. The service was very good and friendly. However the food is just ok, not great. That was kind of a downer. It was a bit high priced for the quality of the food.

“Slow service...average food”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We went here during the Italian Festival and it was a Saturday night....so I understand the service being somewhat slow, but this was ridiculous. When our food did arrive it was lukewarm and nothing to rave about. The restaurant is combo Mexican/Sushi and they offer both menus when you're seated. Kind of odd...maybe their sushi is more promising.

There is a large bar, plenty of screens to watch sports and it is a pleasant atmosphere.

“Lacking in customer service.”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

We dined there early September 2013 when one of our meals was served with rotting shrimp in it. The waiter did take the plate back but the situation was never even acknowledged by the manager. After getting the bill we had to point out that they still charged us for the plate so they then removed the charge. I wrote several emails to the company but took almost 2 weeks to even get a response from the manager promising to undo our bad experience but again could not get any more responses from them. After contacting them from another way to find out what was going on, I was told they felt they satisfied my needs. They made promises to make it right but never did so, all lip service. I will never spend a dime at that place again and extremely disappointed that this was part of Circus Circus.
