Had a wonderful meal there Saturday night. Unfortunately, the server advised that was their last night of operation.

Just received this email ~

    Never made it out there. (Which I guess makes me part of the problem.)

      Very sad to hear about this the other day. Great food, great people. Difficult location. All the best to Marco and Amy.

        Sorry to see they closed

        I thought they did a good lunch business

        Went there for dinner and found the food good ,but very overpriced- entrees in the $mid 20's
        The location was actually good and I am confident that was not put them out of business

        It was their sky high prices for mexican style food

          Thats sad, though I agree they were overpriced. Still, I will miss their fabulous fresh magaritas, especially the jalepeno one.

            Based on the reviews from this board, we had lunch at Curras a few months ago. Few patrons, lovely staff, food good and a bit overpriced for a lunch. Put it on my 'probably wont be able to drag my husband on the long drive to do this again list.'
