Had a post Graduation Lunch for 14. The restaurant is large and had the table set uo and reserved in advance. The food is good and the Margarita's were great. Lots of specials for food and drinks. Service was good but they did not anticipate graduation weekend at Purdue and the staff was a bit overwhealmed.

We ordered premium margaritas, and they were excellent. Chips and salsa were typical. My husband had steak fajitas, and they were great. Prices were fair for the amount of food, not overpriced. We will definitely go back when in the area.

We ate there last night for Cinco de Mayo and was pleasantly surprised that the restaurant had been remodeled since our prior visit a couple years ago. Our waitress could have been a little more efficient, but the food was very good and margaritas were excellent (although a little pricey). Guacamole, chips and salsa were very tasty! The only real...
