We assessed our food here as very good, but not exceptional. Good size portions, so you might want to go light on the chips and salsa they give when you're seated. Excellent value. Prompt and efficient service.

From the moment we walked in, we felt unwelcome. The hostesses actually rolled their eyes when we asked for a table. Our server was less than attentive, at times setting our food on our table without speaking or making eye contact with us. When we...More
