Really nice, casual spot for tex mex style food. Love coming here. Close to the water. Outside seating can get very windy. always a lot of kids/strollers so be prepared for the occasional kid having a meltdown.

Although the location was great the drinks were terrible. We went for bottomless drinks and the food was good but the drinks gave us headaches immediately. Not sure what was in the margaritas but it didnt have that lime taste and the headaches hit quickly. Had migraines all night long after this.
Bellinis and mimosas were also warm.

Found a long hair in my food. Waitress didn’t seem phased by it (guess it’s a normal occurrence?) And they didn’t offer to replace the dish, or attempt to make it right.

And, we STILL got billed for that plate that I didn’t end up touching!!!!

I am from Texas and love Tex-Mex as well as authentic Mexican food. This restaurant provides neither. I've had straight from the head barbacoa con seso, and never have I ever tasted even a touch of sweetness. The barbacoa in the enchiladas tasted candy sweet as did my wife's corn and chicken salad. The fact we left a third of a pitcher of margaritas on the table should be very telling.

Food was great ! The music was a little loud and hear anything the waiter is saying or hear you with.

so, if you're going to do pulsed vouchers its great. What you need to do then is actually abide by the terms of the deal. All inclusive except tax and tip...yet they brought us a bill for 85$?

Wont be back.

A little smaller inside than I expected especially the tables and they didnt put out chips and salsa on the tables as most Mexican Restaurants I've been to. The food was decent and fairly priced. The staff was nice.

Came here for Valentine’s Day. It was so intimate yet lively. Staff was extremely kind. I love the fact that it wasn’t packed and tables were sufficiently far apart from one another. Their tacos are so delish. Always a pleasure everytime I go.
