As always, had a fantastic time. One of our margaritas was incorrect and the issue was quickly resolved. Food is always stellar and the staff is always friendly.

Our server and all of the servers are excellent , but especially last night. The food was the best I've had in a long time.. it was our first time back inside, although we did a lot of take out. The cranberry apple margaritas were amazing

The reservation system worked great. The service and the food was excellent. We have been worried about dining out because of covid, but we felt perfectly comfortable at the Inn with everyone taking every precaution possible. We will be going back soon!

This is our all time favorite Mexican restaurant. The food is great!!! The Margaritas and homemade ice cream are delicious! It is a small restaurant with nice ambience. It is a popular so its small size sometimes means a long wait, but it is well worth the wait!
