Bad food, smells, stay away! – For some reason everytime I've gone here it smells like someone threw up. The only thing worth eating here are the chips and salsa, which isn't free even when you buy meals. Their food does not have an authentic taste, too salty. Do not get anything with mahi mahi in it. They have no beers on tap. The waitresses aren't the best. Don't waste your time here!
Great happy hour for drinks – The crowd is mostly locals in the mid to upper 20s and maybe low 30s. The happy hour drink special is the best deal. Everything's 2 for 1 and if you get a mixed drink (margarita, rum/coke, jack/coke, etc) you can double it and get one big glass, instead of 2 smaller ones. The only major downside is that there aren't any happy hour deals on their food. The appetizers are all pretty good - especially considering most of it is "bar food." During big sporting events/games it gets pretty rowdy and packed with fans.
Nothing special about it – Ok, the atmosphere is primarily UCLA students/alumni. The staff is friendly and especially to the guys (make that tip girls). The food is horrible! We ordered the chicken wings and let's say it was a shame the chickens were sacrificed (order them next door at Q's). We ordered something else but my memory blocked that out entirely. We went during Super Bowl (a year or two ago) and even though it was crowded, there was no drama. We got there early enough to find a great table.
Craziness – this place is crazy. 2 for 1 drinks until 8 pm make this place dangerous!! decent food, good margaritas.
great bar food! Atmosphere! Music! – Almost always crowded with UCLA students, this place rocks! The food is unexcpectidly delicious! wings and Natchos are my favorites! High volume of people guaranties fresh food! Margharittas are tasty and large enough for the money!
Music varies from 80's rock and ballads to newer tunes but it always energetic and a great background for conversations. Waitresses are friendly and service is great for a bar.
Only drawback is that it will take you a while to grab a table...but hey, once again it's a bar!
Spring break? – It was a cool sit down sports place. Its not a place where u would want to go on a saturday night. The Happy hour was insane 2 for 1 everyday from 4pm to 8 pm. The atmosphere felt like i was in spring break. The service is cool and they had plenty of sports even soccer which was cool.
Great conversation, not so great food. – My husband, a friend and myself went there today for lunch. The whole mexican/sports bar thing works well. The outer seating is nice and they have heaters. There is a t.v viewable from EVERY angle, so if you want to catch a few games, you'll get it. Go early and there's no crowd. The atmoshpere and conversation were great, but the food was bland and unoriginal. The fajita sandwhich had no flavor and the burger was just a burger. The server was great though. Sweet and very welcoming. The guy behind the bar was a bit of a jerk though. Not much parking unless you valet.
If you love atmosphere, want to watch the game and have a few drinks, but don't care much about the food, this is the place to go.
happy hours are great! – I've only been here for happy hours which features a twenty-something crowded bar, 2 for 1 drinks, and tasty appetizers. The atmosphere is great and the service is friendly. You can either stay inside or sit by the outside patio area. There's also an upstairs they open up when it's crowded or on the weekends.
beach in the city – Excellent place, cool crowd, great food, ive been there with a group of friends and another time with a date and both times were very good. The colors, the music, the nice margaritas make you feel as if you're right at the beach, feet in the sand. Reasonable prices for food, drinks and valet parking, everybody seems relaxed and easy to talk to, what else is there to say? Just go!
Cheap margaritas and no-frills Mexican food fuel a spring break-style party. – In Short
This colorful cantina's Corona paraphernalia, crop-topped waitstaff and blaring classic rock set a party vibe for the happy-hour hordes who come for potent margaritas on the patio. The low-priced Mexican menu features appetizers such as hot corn chips with salsa, creamy guacamole, gooey cheese dip and crispy black bean-and-cheese egg rolls. For real sustenance, entree highlights include tostado salads, a fajita sandwich of marinated flank steak with grilled veggies and mahi mahi tacos.
