Stopped in for some post workout food and beverages. Sat at the bar, Monica was our bartender and server. She not only made us some outstanding margaritas (cantina specials), she also made sure that we had a great dining experience. As locals we appreciate that.

I would not think so but you might want to call and be sure. It's not a fast food restaurant.
