This was the second time I've been to this particular restaurant and I was so disappointed. The food was sub par. I ordered the empanadas off of the appetizer menu as my main dish along with a glass of wine. The food was cold, tasteless and greasy and I swear that the wine was watered down. I had to convince...

We really enjoyed the customer service here and the food was wonderful as were the drinks. We ate here multiple times while we were in a local hotel. We had options of all kinds of restaurants but the food and customer service here kept us coming back.

Everything was great. Our server Mike was very engaging and made our evening awesome. He checked on us throughout the evening to make sure we were okay.

4 adults and two toddlers ate dinner here - they were able to squeeze us into a table for 4 outside with two highchairs which was nice of them. The food was just ok - I`m not a huge fan of mexican food but everyone else in our group enjoyed it. Portions are big and service was quick. They had... More

Greeted by such a friendly staff as soon as we walked in. We were exhausted from travelling and they took such great care of us! Sat us down and got our drinks right away. The server was so sweet and very helpful with my gluten free needs. We got enormous servings and everything was delicious. We will certainly be back... More

We were in town on business and found the food and the service were great. The food was hot and came very quickly. Server was so courteous and attentive. We will go back.

Just off the NJ Turnpike at Exit 4 and close to interchanges on Route 295- stop here and... More

I went to eat here last week and I orderd the cheese quesadilla. When the food came, it was cold. That might not be too suprising but, I asked to warm it up and only half of it was hot! I didn't eat the rest of the meal
