  • Amanda JAverage Tex-Mex fare. Great tequila selection and good customer service.

  • Teresa GSpicy Margaritas 👌👌

  • Paola MckeeMargs are too sweet and leave a syrupy sugary coat in your mouth. Food is not authentic or even close to Tex-mex. Overrated. Sadly no Mexico authenticity here. So many better places.
