We had an awesome meal and it was very authentic. Our food was delicious and it's very affordable. Perfect for us as we weren't looking for anything fancy, we just wanted good food.

We love TG! If you leave hungry, it's your own fault! The food is very good - the staff attentive, even though their English is thin. Good margaritas, and I especially love the chicken Super Burrito. There is always enough left for lunch the next...More
