Interior Swag: If you can score one of the giant half-moon booths in the back then you've got the most comfortable spot in the house. A steady breeze of fresh air flows through the wall-less street side of the restaurant. If you take a photo in the booth with the wall in the background, your friends will believe you're actually south of the border. A few too many televisions for a non-sports bar, so maybe not the best spot for a first date. And enough cheesy happy hour banners outside to make you feel a bit embarrassed for even walking in. However, still worth the trip.
Booze: The double marg is not for beginners. Drink with caution.Oh, and ask for extra limes.
Service: The waitresses are always super mellow and laid back but right there when you need them.
Go-Back-Again-Ness: It's a hot spot for happy hour, so try visiting in the early afternoon to get a good seat.
