First, food was good. I had the steak fajitas which were spicy and filling. Second, the prices were extremely good. My kid's meal (beef taco, rice and beans) was $5. My fajitas were $11. Third, the servers were friendly and on top of everything.

Never had anything that was not good and served HOT. It is always packed and nice because of lots of great discount shopping to spend hours- very good margaritas - great service with a smile.
