We also walked to the restaurant after a long drive. Glad to park the car and not have to drive somewhere for dinner. Nice surprise. Very fresh Mexican food. The chicken tacos were amazing. No shredded chicken here. Large chunks of breast meat mesquite roasted on the tacos. Chips and salsa very good.

We walked over from the hotel to find a gem of a restaurant. The chips were hot, the salsa good and replenished. I highly recommend the chicken chimichanga with the rice and beans. The margaritas were delicious too. The wait staff was very attentive to our needs.

After some time when the Cooks were being changed this location has been reinvigorated with the quality that once was prevalent here. Always have music on both porches and the service is impeccable. Everything is good on the menu. Try the Mexican soup!

This place is okay and their food is okay...nothing special. Their margaritas are tasty and their salsa is good but their food is nothing to drive great distances for...if I'm in the area, it's definitely worth trying.

The atmosphere is lively and the patio offers live music. The menu was extensive with an impressive selection. I had the fish tacos and they were delicious!

The service is attentive but the choice is limited if you don't like spicy food. In the patio area you can have live music while inside there are several sports TV screens.

We too, walked from our hotel.Thought the place was great from the moment we stepped inside! Chips and Salsa are the bomb! Nice thin crisp chips, the salsa was the cool slow burn type, takes a few chips to get the heat flowing! Service was AWESOME, very attentive. Food was top notch as well.

Dinner tonight, walked to the restaurant. Lots of people here with music outside. So convenient and appeared to be a happening place. The food was nothing special. I order the bean burrito. Service was fast and good. The atmosphere was loud music with the inside competing with the outside. Lots of televisions playing with sports on all channels. Perfect guy... More
