The overall experience of this place was superb. The food was quick and hot when it arrived to me. The wait staff was friendly and very polite. The price of the meal was very reasonably.

We ate here with our friends over the weekend. We had a great time and were able to stay a long time and didn't feel rushed. They had a tasty chips and salsa that wasn't too spicy!

Are there last night based on Trip Advisor reviews. Big Mistake. Waiter told us Margaritas on ice were hand make, not out of a machine. Guess what? And they must have a shortage of salt there. My wife's fajita was cold when served and my...More
