“Fresh food”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Staff were nice. Food was authentic and fresh. We made changes to our menu choice and they didn't blink an eye. The cost was average and worth it.

“Gluten Free Options!!!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We had a great time here! When we first arrived, we were told it might be 20 minute wait. After heading to the bar, we were seated 10 minutes later. The service was ok the first visit, the food was really good. See there, the first visit.
We visited this place because on another website we found out they serve GLUTEN-FREE food. It's tricky to find a Mexican restaurant that has gluten-free options, so.... We visited a second time. Much better. Seated fast and our server the second time, Kendra, was awesome.
Their gluten-free options fit on a pamphlet and are actually plentiful. We were also told that the chips are corn chips fried in its own fryer, not shared for other foods. My son had the pork carnitas tacos with black beans and fruit. He was happy. Be advised though, their signature white jalapeno sauce and Mexican rice are not gluten free. We would definitely eat there again and again.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

I got invited here by a friend. I must say I was impressed with such delicious food and a very friendly staff. The ambiance was like being in southern Mexico with all the talavera tile.

“It's ok”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We could not understand why we had to wait outside for a table for over 20 mins when there were plenty of empty tables inside and in the patio. I did enjoy the free chips with 3 different salsas. Everything else was over-priced Mexican food. It was OK. Not my favorite place to dine and won't be coming back.
