Large menu offers something for just about anyone and daily specials also. Nice bar area with sports on the TVs. Great friendly service. Prices are reasonable and restaurant is very clean. I enjoyed a beef enchilada and a Chile Reneno, both good.

I do like going to this place. The atmosphere is subdued and the employees pleasant. The food is always good. The decor is festive and caters to the ambience.
