One of our fav restaurants for a fun and relaxing time! There is a very large assortment of Mexican dishes to choose from and a wide variety of drinks and beer. The chips and salsa are excellent. So are the Margaritas. Try this restaurant, you will be glad you did!

This was the second time we went to this place. They have great margaritas. When it's really busy it can be really loud. Food is good. We had fajitas, chicken and chorizo, and you get a lot of meat and veggies. Great flavor. We also had chicken burrito with green sauce, inside it was little dry but they gave you... More
