  • I got roofied here. Don't do it.
  • Best Margaritas ever!
  • Amazingly strong margaritas, also a bar upstairs. Great guac and delish food! They usually bring a free round over if you buy a drink or two. (We prefer the pitchers.)
  • Unknown tip! Free margarita, sangria, or soda with lunch
  • When ever you want home made food taste come here !! Super good !!!
  • Love the chimichangas and margaritas. The service is on point. They very attentive and hard working!
  • Recently raised happy hour price of drinks to $5. Adjust yout budget accordingly.
  • Skip the food and go straight to the second floor for the all night Happy Hours on Monday and Thursdays where you can dance to Bachata and Salsa the crowd is a bit older.
  • Happy hour special. If you dub on the mayor, you get a free drink.
  • Drinks good everything else sucks!!! Run!
  • Amazing happy hour every day of the week $4 drinks...interesting crowd but a pleaser!
  • Stay far away. Get nachos at Taco Bell before this place and see which is better.
  • No matter how many times I go here and order margaritas, I'm always shocked at how strong they are.
  • Happy hour drinks and different flavored margaritas are delicious.
  • Incredibly overpriced.
  • Place was a rip off. Never going back. Count how many drinks you actually consume if you're planning on being there for a long time.
  • Food is weak. Not a fan.
  • $5 drinks from 5pm-4am on Thursdays with free wings. And dancing. Can't beat that
  • Great frozen margaritas !!
  • Monday is all you can eat entree day for 12 bucks!!!
