Everything here tastes amazing, the waitstaff treat you well, and it's impossible not to have an overall good meal when you come here. I always try something different and never walk away unhappy...plus the food is very reasonably priced!

Came to restaurant looking for Mexican Food but this is more of a Tex Mex type of food. For example, no tacos al pastor or tacos in corn tortillas. The food we ordered was average for their type of food and the prices were okay.

You enter and are immediately seated by any one of very polite servers. Chips and very good salsa comes in short order along with a menu. Many different combinations and pre set meals are available. The cheese steak is very good as well as everything...More
