Food is great. Everyone ordered different things and everyone liked what they ordered. Devil eggs appetizer was awesome. Parking is not very good but they have valet parking so that’s a few more bucks added to your tab. All in all great.

My wife and I split a seafood salad and grilled swordfish tacos. Both were so fresh and wonderful array of flavors!!! Highly, highly recommend either! Only disappointment was key lime pie for dessert. Could hardly taste any lime. Service excellent and decor casual but tasteful.

Nice place with really good food. Love the Shredded Kale, Shrimp cocktail and good drink assortment. The Carnitas was not what I expected but then I’m spoiled coming from Albuquerque, New Mexico. They don’t use red sauce, they use real red and green Hatch Chili....More

First, food is awesome. I had the cactus margarita that was recommended and then we had two appetizers - gauc & chips and we also had devil eggs with bacon on the side. For dinner - 2 burgers, one veg burger and the veg tacos....More

It was ok. Very artsy and definitely NOT A MEXICAN RESTAURANT!!! Food was good, trendy environment but somehow came up as an outstanding Mexican food restaurant and that’s not their deal.

I think it is as good as the main restaurants. Definitely better than I would have expected at an airport.
