 Great food and great atmosphere!

 Now this is a restaurant!

Very energetic, looks like a distinguished pool hall on one side. Leather overstuffed chairs, brass railings, enormous bar, huge tv screens for your sportsviewing pleasure and rock music blaring from the speakers.

On the dining side it's presented as fine dining with a casual feel. Polished wood tables, linen napkins, huge stone fireplace, a wall of wine bottles on display and the dull roar of chatter amongst the tables.

The food is high in price but mouthwatering good. You must try the seafood stuffed empanadas!

This place is great for a date, taking the inlaws out, boys night out, well adult boys, no frat, beer guzzling juveniles. They would be outclassed in a millisecond.

 bad Mexican Food...really bad mexican food. Don't do it. These people don't have a clue and it shows. If you want Taco-bell like menu offerings except worse quality, it's the place for you. Even Taco Cabana has better Margaritas. What's up with that?

 Excellent food and draft beer selection, a true neighborhood bar feel with great staff. Surrounded by TVs for every major event, but especially like the huge screen in the back room.
