Enjoyed a quiet meal with live music on a Sunday night. Hubby enjoyed the seafood buffet and I had fajitas. Excellent service and good food.

I am somewhat baffled by some of these reviews. I have been to this place 3 times over the last 5 years. Two of them after oral surgery in Progreso, and now this year. 1. Food. This food is legit. Prime Rib was wonderful, very...More
