Food was really good and reasonably priced with the happy hour specials. But like the title says, the service was slow but he was very nice when he got there.

Been there before and enjoyed it. Went back to very very poor service. Disorganized servers. No personality servers. Took a long time to get service - many separate trips by different servers to bring the drinks. They ran out of chips???? Seriously???? Then other servers brought the food, which some was forgotten. Forgot to provide silverware, which is important to eat with. Watched tables get up and leave when nobody came to their table. Listened to another table complain. Finally did get food, which was actually very good. Tickets got confused and server did not do them right. I struggled to determine a gratuity, of which our server did not earn much. I have emailed my concerns and hope to see positive changes.

Great prices and great service. Made it in before six to enjoy happy hour. Discounts on drinks and appetizers.

We were looking forward to a great evening meal with family and left disappointed. We had made reservations and were seated immediately. After a while, our server took our drink order. It took a long time to receive our drinks. When our meals arrived, we had no flatwear or napkins. It took 5 minutes for us to receive them. The food was average - no need for us to go there again.

Three of us went on a Saturday, and there are several things that stood out to me. If you have had Tex Mex and you are expecting things like Chips and Salsa at the table you have to ask for it and its extra. I have been spoiled by Fiesta Cancun in Brooklyn park and La Casita in Columbia Heights, both had superior food quality, value, and service. We spent over $90 for 3 meals, chips and salsa, including two beers and a screw driver. GOOD LORD... I almost forgot about the screwdriver the server didn't know if they could make a screwdriver she had to go check... ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
We weren't checked on, and it took a long time to get the food to the table. If you need to stay in the mall Bubba Gump is a much better experience, or if you have kids, check out the Rainforest Cafe. The food quality was good but nothing that really stood out to me.
