I asked about this place last week as I saw it opened fairly recently. We decided to try it last night. It purported itself to be a SouthWest cuisine resto. This restaurant is located west of Hwy 404 on Hwy 7 north side in the "mall" which has about 9-10 other restos in it including Carnaval, Alice Fazollis, Keg, etc.

We went yesterday at 7pm and we were the only patrons on the inside. Patio had about 2 groups. We thought this was a bad sign! When popping open the menu, we were fairly dissapointed as the main course fair was VERY generic. Nothing of interest, nothing distinctly South-West. We were pretty put off. We then started looking ove the appetizers and found a few interesting items so we decided on 6 appetizers for the 4 of us. Pulled chicken taquitos, bbq pork quesedilla, corn bread, tortilla chips/nachos, bbq ribs and calamari. Let's just say the best thing was the corn bread! The sad thing was, the corn bread was advertised as "Sizzling Hot Corn Bread in a skillet" While the bread was good, the skillet was ice cold :P The taquitos were ok, but nothing like authentic taquitos. The calamari was seasoned nicely, but nothing special about it. The quesedialla the pork was tasty but not enough in the quesedilla. The ribs were VERY tender and fall off the bone, but completely tasteless. Dinner with pop drinks was $80 for 4. Let's just say I do not reccommend this place.
