Granted, we came 45 minutes before closing. Service was slow, good salsa (I like it spicy) but queso was good. Rest of the meal was passable.

The food was delicious and the service was prompt. The salsa that arrived with the chips was slight more spicy than either of us were use to but it was good. Chips were fresh and crisp. Portions were very generous. Reasonable priced dinner for two.

Service was extremely slow and the order was wrong. No silverware at the table and when asked, staff took some off a nearby DIRTY table. The food... eh. It was ok at best. Defiantly not going to be back.
