My boys went here for dinner and raved about it. The nachos are fantastic and the pork burritos are superb. They are looking to going back again this year!

The quesadillas were dry and they used cheddar and mozzarella. In a Mexican restaurant. The rice is aweful and bland. The chips are nothing special. Definitely not the high light of our trip
