I always get the steak and shrimp fajitas and substitute creamed spinach and grilled veggies for the beans and rice. All very tasty.

The spinach enchiladas are the best. I like the salsa varieties that you get and that they are generous with chips. Service was good. My only complaint is that the iced tea was a little weak.
