Had the guacamole and chips as an appetizer and it was excellent, just wish they gave you a little more. For an entree we split a shrimp fajita and it was also delicious and the serving size was more than sufficient. If you’re going for...More

Sorry but after waiting an hour to be seated I expected better. The drink was weird,too strong and the burrito just didn’t seem right. My son’s fajitas looked much better. Definitely don’t recommend the burritos. Waitress was helpful however.
