Rated 4 out of 5 by Waiter was rude presenting the bill. Highlighted one amount and charged another. Highlighted food total without drink,tax, and tip. Charged total including tip for two adults and two kids. Presented receipt and said "sign sign sign on line!" Questioned total and showed me bill and shinned a led flashlight on total. Then again says sign on line on line. But what really got me was he did not bring me my drink until I ordered it a second time half way through dinner. Food is good, mariachi music is great. Service awful unless you are buying drinks. May 24, 2015
