Rated 4 out of 5 by from Food is excellent. I have been there before. On this visit however we had the junior mariachi they were okay, but wanted the original group as I had seen before, disappointed, otherwise I would have given 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great restaurant. They would not seat us until 2:00, however, as it was packed until the Mariachis left. The meal was good. Our bill was still $50 including the tip. It would be too pricey for us without the $25, but we will probably go back if they stay in the program. Nice experience.
