Experience the disappointment of mouthwatering aromas and visually appealing dishes that fail to deliver. As a Texan, I thought I was in for a treat with the promise of exquisite Mexican cuisine. However, the taste resembled nothing more than dog food. Don’t let appearances deceive you – this place is a culinary letdown. Sorry not Sorry!
