Food and service was fantastic. Would recommend to anyone. The lunch menu still offers a significant amount to eat. Margaritas are also quality.

The food was delicious. Large portions and super affordably priced. Food arrived fresh and plentiful. Was with 3 other people and they got huge portions as well. This is the best Mexican food to date I have ever eaten! (And THAT is a compliment!)
