"I love skinnys! I prefer dinner over brunch- only because I am not much of a breakfast person. The guacamole and fish tacos are to die for! Love the servers and the cool snap on (with buckles!) high chairs they offer for kids."

"We went for bunch and were very happy with the food quality. We just couldn't understand why our waitress rushed to pick up our plates and silverwares without showing any courtesy. We were in and out in half an hour because she simply pushed us out the door while they were plenty of empty tables. Other waiters were not like that and the bus boys were very pleasant. We felt sorry to be served by her."

"Nice smooth ambiance. Food was very good so was the desserts except for one exception...the Tres Leches was not the traditional recipe, it was more like a pound cake. Will differently come back with more friends."
