management issues but amazing dishes – It was a classic staffing issue, one waitress who didn't really know what she was doing and couldn't remember anything you needed... maybe 5 tables had customers. We didn't get attended to for 15 minutes and a "regular" came in and got all her drinks and order taken immediately while we sat starving... the one waitress was waiting tables, bartending and taking to-go orders and wasn't good at it to begin with so what can you expect... eventually another girl showed up and sort of helped by cleaning plates and taking instructions from the waitress...

us: "can we have 2 waters and a Sierra Nevada?"

her: "sure honey"

10 minutes pass, she takes to go orders, completely forgets what we need...

us: "excuse me, can you make that a corona instead of a sierra?"

her: "of course, no problem"

(enter assistant) she brings us a corona AND a sierra and we never receive any water for our stay...

us: "can i have a lime for the corona?"

mass confusion ensues. Apparently no one had ever wanted a lime in their beer. ever.

At any rate, the food eventually came (beef enchilada plate and chicken enchilada plate) and they were amazing. The perfect amount of food, two flat blue corn tortillas and served with hornitas and rice and beans. delicious. saved the day.
