Great place for a relaxing meal with friends. Patio is excellent with a view of Rhodes Park. Mexican and American fare on the menu. Great margaritas and sangria.

I was in Birmingham for one night, & this place was nearby. It was a casual fun place with some interesting items. They had a caprese quesadilla as a special that night which was tasty -- and I also had a great Margarita.

Food was very plain tasting plus you had to go to the bar to place your order for food or drinks. Only service is they will bring your food to the table.More

Hi Marshae, Thanks for the review! Our restaurant is considered "fast casual" where you order at the register or bar and we bring the food out to your table. Sorry no one checked on you after. Our employees are supposed to try to check on...More

Through the maze of stree repairs, we found good food !! The restaurant was mostly empty, so prompt service wasn’t a question. Generous portions of delicious food. So, we found a blessing as a result of all the construction in downtown Birmingham.
