Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 184reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The waiter was very good when we first arrived. There was a huge party that didn't all arrive until close to 7:00pm so the waiters were extremely busy taking orders and serving. Once he served our food, we never saw him again. We needed water and dessert, but he gave us the check before we had a chance to order dessert. Nov 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The food was extremely overpriced but that's due to the fact they had a Mariachi group playing during the time we went. So we paid for the entertainment. Due to this the restaurant was busy and service was slow. Nov 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Manager on duty was very accommodating. Oct 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The food is very fresh and the taco lady is very sweet. Oct 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good brunch variety - Very good flavored foods - plentiful. The constriction of allowing only one bill per table creates problems when the group is relatively large and some don't drink, etc. Splitting the costs requires an accountant! Suggest preparing one bill for the brunch but allowing the drinks to be billed per couple. Oct 19, 2015
