“Out with friends”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Not the best. Usually we have a great experience and no problems. This time it felt like there were nothing but issues. It started with one of us being in a wheelchair and the lounge NOT being accessible for her. So, we opted for the dining room. Then, we asked for them to honor their 'happy hour' specials. "No, those are only for the lounge." But, our friend cannot get in there. So, they asked the manager. Finally, they came back and said that they would honor the specials, but did not seem happy about it, and kept checking their watch to be sure we ordered before the cut-off time of 6pm.
Then one of us received her food and the rest of us waited. Finally, we all got our food. Two orders were wrong, including mine. I have dietary restrictions, but did not notice until I was nearly done with mine. They had scraped off the food that I am allergic too! Good thing that I caught it and did not eat that part!
I had to ask for a refill on my drink, and we sat with dirty plates for quite some time in front of us.
We all decided that we will not be going back. There are so many other nice places in town for us to have a great dinner.

“Gone down hill”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

This is our favorite restaurant, and about a year ago the service was up to par with their food. But we have watched the slow decline in customer service over the past year. We literally go here every 2 weeks, so it makes us pretty sad that all the charisma is gone. First you walk in now to be half heartily greeted by someone who you can tell you are bothering, then you are seated, and after awhile you start to wonder....does a server know I am here?.... Refills take a long time..and the overall quality of the food seems to have dissipated. We now drive the 30 to 45 minutes up to the Vallarta in Kingston, the service and the fact they actually put cheese in their Fajita Quesadilla and give you more than two spoon fulls of Queso dip is worth it.

“Average at best”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Went there recently to have a few beers and dinner with a friend. Their beer selection was good. The waitresses were nice and attentive. The food, not so good. I ordered carnitas street tacos. The flavoring of the meat was minimal. I couldn't taste anything. The chips and salsa were really pretty good. My friend ordered a ground beef taco salad and was not impressed. It doesnt take much to get the seasonings right on these dishes. Just very bland run of the mill "Mexican" food. Lots of room for improvement.
The bar scene was pretty obnoxious. They really need to do a better job of not over-serving their patrons. There were several people who could hardly stand up and were shouting and cursing very loudly, but the bartenders continued to serve them (and this was at 6pm).

“Its fun”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

A "cookie cutter" mexican resturant. Nothing different with the menu. See these places all over, just with a different name.
