    My reservation was for 6 pm but I arrived early at around 5:30 and they seated me so I think that was the confusion with me not “ honoring my reservation” but I did !

    Really nice. Good food - loved the guacamole (so much that we ordered two). The cheese crisp was also delicious. We had the BBQ pork one. My short rib enchiladas were delicious, and the spicy skinny margaritas were fantastic. Few calories and all the flavor! Brian took great care of us and was a lot of fun. I highly recommend this place. We're glad to have found it - thank you Cherry Creek Magazine for doing the write up that lead us there. Enjoy!!

    our service might have been the best service I have received anywhere. Our server was attentive and spaced our courses out perfectly. He was extremely friendly and the food was excellent too.

    The guacamole was unseasoned and tasted nothing like the description. I had to take a knife and cut it cup as it was just a couple of big chunks. The tacos were good. Not great. They were served with rice and beans which looked like they were served with a teaspoon . The spicy skinny margaritas were wonderful. The service was also very good

    Chips and salsa for the table were very good. Music was way too loud to have a good conversation. Service was attentive and helpful. Food was closest we have come to good Tex-Mex since we moved to Denver from Texas. Street parking situation is difficult, especially given other businesses and apartment buildings in the area.

    Fish had turned . Manager took off bill but explained fish had to be ok. Waitress very pleasant but no idea how to give service to our table of three when they hit her with a birthday party of 12. Saw her once then gone until the bill where she discovered my plate had not been touched. Oh well lots of Mexican in Denver

    Our first time here and it was good. The restaurant is a cool vibe, pretty loud. The food was pretty good overall. The drinks were tasty but a little pricey. The skinny marg was one of the better ones I’ve had and better than their base marg. Service was a little slow- first drinks took quite some time and it seemed my marg was a little watered down as a result. Food also seemed to take some time. But everyone was very friendly. We would go back

    Our server Robby paid spent just the right amount of time with us and was very attentive and considerate. (We ordered a pitcher of margaritas and had mentioned we didn't a glass for the last person arriving to our party who was a non-drinker and when he arrived he offered up a selection of non-alcoholic drinks for him.) Food was good. The only thing is that it was quite loud in there and hard to talk across our table.

    Just ok, and with all the authentic Mexican restaurants I’ll go elsewhere… felt very commercial too. My veggie enchiladas were meh, but beans & rice were rockin! Our server wasn’t the nicest; she seemed bothered by us - and we were easy going; we were in corner booth upfront at windows 5:30p-7p 10/15/22. Overall good experience tho… just needs… SPICE / AUTHENTICITY…

    We were there for happy hour and had heard the food was great. Ambiance and service were very good on the covered, heated patio. Food was just okay. Everything, especially the chips, was significantly over salted. Queso was good, but wasn’t a fan of the greasy carnitas tacos.

    First off, Our server was awesome. No complaints there! However, the food was below average for a Tex-Mex restaurant and it took a very long time to receive our entrees (tacos and enchiladas) took 50 minutes to get to the table. Not sure what happened. Probably won’t be returning!
