Food was tolerable but nothing spectacular and way overpriced. Service is slow and not very good. It's pretty much Taco Boy, but even more expensive with an "upscale" attitude because it has a lot of tequilas.
I live in the neighborhood and wanted this place to do well at first, but if they don't change direction, I'll be surprised if it lasts the winter once they close the patio.
If you're coming to East Montague for lunch or dinner, you should go to pretty much any other place on the street first. If you're looking for great Mexican food, go on down Spruill to Santi's, or up Rivers to La Nortena, and order the Mexican tacos. Much better food, much less pretensiousness.

Some of the world's best short films are coming to Charleston this weekend!
For years, we would go every 4 or 5 months to treat visitors who want fish. Having gone again last week, it's time to find a new place. You know what you're getting with the service and the space, but we go for the food. This place prided itself on fish so fresh and delicious that the broiled stuff was almost unspiced. Just a kiss of pepper and wave a lemon near the plate. This last time, I ordered the broiled mahi. It was a touch rubbery, not bad, but the kicker was that it was *coated* in pepper. That's what you do with old tilapia to keep it from tasting like funk. The hominy squares used to have bacon fat and a hint of jalapeno heat. This time it was too bland, too mushy, and, as the reviewer said, hammy. Are there any good places left (outside of downtown) for folks who eat fish?
I worry a bit when any government representative arbitrarily says he/she "would like to widen this or re-route that". Unless they're a civil engineer with expertise in traffic flow.
The last time politics won over engineering, business development of the Navy Base halted because a government official had money ties to a certain rail company.
The time before that, the railroad was sent to the Navy Base from its intended Daniel Island location, likely also due to some hidden money.
The time before, Hungryneck and the mess it created, trying to route around a bunch of subdivisions (that were themselves allowed by poor city planning).
I'm not well-versed on the Spruill narrowing for bike lanes, but I hope smart planning was done there.
Maybe Rawl is a traffic engineer or has experts advising him and he's not deciding based on what he thinks would be nice. Let's hope so.
Gregory, you can visit the website http://www.parkcirclefilms.org/ to get driving directions, ticket prices, etc.
Don't forget the free outdoor screening of The Neverending Story at Mixson! Starts at sundown; donations are suggested but definitely not required!
