Overall not bad. The service was good. The food was good. The atmosphere was good. Pros: has a nice view from the top floor, good service, nice chips and salsa Cons: some plates dont have the largest portion sizes, you have to wait a bit if youre on the top floor, Is it a big wow factor place, no. But is it good, reasonably priced Mexican food at the university city boardwalk, Yes. Go give it a try, if you dont like it ok, and if you do great.
Super great place to come have a drink and or have a nice lunch/Dinner with the Family. The staff here are very attentive and very professional!! Karaoke is also available on Friday & Saturday! I feel very pleased with how they operate this business. They are very very welcoming

About what you'd expect this far from Mexico. Fish tacos used deep fried cod. Refried beans with American cheese couldn't be substituted. Cactus salad was underwhelming. Service was both great and terrible. Some servers competent, management was stingy. We should have left when they didn't allow us to order from the lunch menu at 3:05. Not many locals and hardly any native Mexicans would have been so punctual.
Every time I order they have different prices. This place must not be doing well. I went off their menu online trying to place a lunch order for a group of 5. After ordering over the phone realizing their prices were drastically increased compared to online I changed my mind. Does 16 dollars sound reasonable for three shrimp tacos with no sides? They must be real GOOD. Were okay we can get that plus more somewhere else. No thank you!
