Delicious food and super friendly service. Great range of tequila. Ask to borrow a sombrero if you’re sitting outside in the sun! We had a ball.

Great food. Fun energetic service. Free tequila shots if you tell them it’s your birthday. They do lots of main dishes, but it would be nice if they did more share plates.
