    Good Happy Hour

    Every Wednesday margaritas are one dollar and appetizers are half off the shrimp are to die for... Can be a little crowed at times, but a night out with your friends this is a good choice

    If you're a young, drunken, tattooed brainless half-wit from out of town, you will love this place.

    awful food

    My friends and I had dinner here and it was terrible. I ordered the cod which was a "house favorite". The fish was bland and tasteless, the coating had zero flavor. It was supposed to be served with roasted corn and garlic spinach. It was just unseasoned wilted spinach topped with canned corn. Pathetic. My friends burritos were edible, nothing to write home about. They came with nothing but a side of soggy salad. Sour cream was $1 extra. My friend ordered a frozen margarita that was the most synthetic, fake lime flavor ever, it reminded me of dish soap. The sangria was less than stellar also. I have no complaints about the server, she was fine. I will never go back here..ugh...

    Nice place poor service

    My girlfriend & I planned to have a nice happy hour after long week at work, and instead that we've got the poor service we could ever think of... the food was Ok & the price was fine, i have to say that the margarita was good. Think twice before you go there...

    Fun

    I live around the corner, and work nowhere nearby so when I heard that a coworker Xmas gathering was going to be there I was surprised, and honestly, disappointed. Walking by I see a bouncer and some 20-somethings (ok - I am in my 30s) at the door. But I have to say, if you want to go to a place after work (on a Thursday anyway), can shut out the crowd if you are a NY snob (this is not NY cool), and like strong drinks and a mix of music that will get you moving, you have found it! The bartenders were attentive and friendy, and they had a hottie with jello and test tube shots working the floor. The goal is clearly for them to make money - but I had a great time in the process - so who a I to complain? I can't comment on the food, but as a bar I say good ol' American Cheese fun. I think this is a chain (read:Orlando?) but whatever.

    Easy Fun

    This restaurant is fun and loud - a bit too loud at times. But, what I love about this place is it doesn't take itself too seriously. For anyone that wants fine dining, this isn't the place. If you want good food, great service (our waitress was better than any other I've experienced in New York), and strong drinks - there's nothing better.

    Mediocre

    I have been here during the happy hours. Quite noisy!! I hae also been at lunch times. the food is mediocre. No attention to details. Who cooks mexican food here? Even sangria tastes like cheap fruit punch. Service is slow. It is only medican place in the beat. I am surpised that they are still in business!
