Had dinner during the Loyola game. Good TV's for viewing a game, prices reasonable, food was ok. Chips, although free, were meh. Same with salsa. Drinks were good. Nothing in the food prep/source seemed homemade. Good location. Clean restroom.

Been to this restaurant several times. We have never been disappointed. The food is always hot and tasty. Their fresh guacamole is delicious. It is a small place so it's best to go there before and after peak times. You won't be disappointed.
