If you "can't be sitting oceanside in Mexico" , this chainlet is the "next best thing" say fans cheering the "delicious" Mexican fare and "top-shelf margaritas" ; they can get "crowded" (the French Quarter original has a "quaint patio" too), and otherwise solid service can "seem overwhelmed" when "busy" , but "reasonable prices" help distract.

I eat here frequently and Jona takes care of business but this place needs more and better trained wait staff. Anytime I’m not at the bar the service is lack luster at best. However the food quality and bar service keeps me coming back.

This is one of my top favorite Mexican restaurants in New Orleans! I always enjoy my meal and the service is always wonderful. My favorite things to get are the fajitas (shrimp and steak), shrimp quesadillas, table side guacamole, and the machoman margarita! You can’t go wrong with any of those! It’s on the pricier side, but so worth the money!!

Great food, free chips and salsa, generous portions and a helpful staff. They recently added more parking making it easier to go to during peak hours. Always a solid choice for a great meal
