Great place for a night out. The fajitas were great, but hands down my favorite part is the margaritas. Love the open space and easy going staff. I visit every time I’m in town.

This is a chain restaurant but it's quite good. Good guacamole & chips are served fresh and warm. Convenient to the super 8 (walk).
