for Germans this might be acceptable mexican food since they might not know any better. If you have had real mexican food then you know that this is a poor imitation. The place was overstuffed, the waitstaff disorganized and the food overpriced. When I booked the reservation they actually asked how long we wanted to stay. I pulled 2 hours out of my *** thinking it wouldn't mattter. they actually came to our table and asked us to pay and leave after two hours!! Will never go here again.

A great place to meet friends for drinks. Drink menu is much better than food choices!

Nice atmosphere and they try hard...but it is not Mexican food as you would expect. They have a buffet on Wednesday's but it is expensive and all but one dish is served cold. However, if you are craving chips and salsa then you might be willing to settle for this. Great bar scene, so with several drinks in you, even Taco Bell is good!!
