Good inexpensive steak house with many choices of sides. Those that come with your dinner include several choices of potato and a salad. The 3 steak option is very good for 2/3 people coming with a sirloin, filet and flat iron combo totally 16 or 29 ounces, your choice. Loud but not too loud and fun atmosphere with excellent service.... More

This place was recommended to us by our hotel concierge and we greatly enjoyed our dinner. Our favorites were the sangria, empanadas, and steak with mushrooms and red wine cream sauce. Not only did we love the meal, but we also were pleased with the price. It was very reasonable compared to other dinner spots in the area. They do... More

We found the food to be on the plain side. We ordered empanadas, chicken, salmon, and steak. None of it was very flavorful or anything special, especially for the price. The bread was complimentary. The best thing we found were the grilled vegetables. Very limited parking. Valet is $5.00.

My adult son and I had dinner here. He recommended the sangria and entrana. I had the classic and it was great. He had his with a garlic topping.

Nothing special on this food, I won't return to this place. Mash potatoes and carrots are good for babies ;)

We were looking for a nice relaxing dinner out on a Saturday night. Called and was told that no reservations for three could be taken. Arrived to a jammed parking lot--so happy to valet! Walked in and hostess said 1.5 hr wait. We decided to walk around and shop. Returned to still wait. Food was inexpensive by local standards and... More

Visited here today 07/24/16 with my family that was in town from the ATL. This was my first time at this location and I was not all that fond feom the start. First, they have valet only parking because they're in a bad location. Granted it's only $5 but the valet guy was rude as hell so I parked my... More
