Came in for the first time and had dinner. was confused with the full menu and Buffett. food was really delicious and fresh, however portions could be bigger. service was worse than expected. Would give a 2nd try but if the experience is the same I probably wouldn't return.

Good food, good prices, good service. Plenty of booze in the Margaritas. I really like the vegetarian fajitas. Not really fancy, just really good!

We had a quick lunch at this restaurant, great chips and salsa and delicious chicken fajitas, very tasty. The fried beans were very good along with the guacamole side. We enjoyed the service and the ambiance of the restaurant. It got quite crowded for lunch. Price was OK.
