We both got Fajitas mine was chicken, terrible tasting without any flavor, and my dinner date had steak fajita, tough meat. Also the extras like the beans were very dry too. I'm not going back again.

Their lunch buffet is ok, food good, but minimal offerings, especially on the salad side. Small space allowed for buffet creates congestion

We ate here as a family and were very unimpressed by the food. The food was bland and the texture was mushy. The service was excellent however.

Four words: Carne asada y mas. The mas is a chicken enchilada with mole sauce. The mole is intense. In a good way. There's also a buffet that looked and smelled really good, but I have no regrets with my choice. Good margaritas as well!
