The music was nice and the place has a nice ambience. It was not too crowded. The appetizers and drinks were pretty good as well as the dessert. The main couse was passable. My wife enjoyed it quite a bit, and is already thinking about going back.

The show was good but the food was not. The mariachi's were good but they cut the show short due to them starting late.
