Great Service, Great Food, Reasonable Prices and Hugh servings. Nice atmosphere. We had a great lunch and will most likely have to make the trip back from Port Charlotte again soon.

I always have their Carne Con Chile (pork). So yummy, nice and spicy :) the chips and salsa are great. Service is always good. Other family members have had the Carne Dinner (roasted pork tips) which is also great.

Owners very nice & provide excellent service. Very clean -- floors, windows, walls,tables & condiment on tables all sparkle. No liquor license so don't expect a margarita because they are wine based and don't taste like tequila margaritas. Good variety of bottle beer served with...More
