I have been there with my husband a couple of times already, whenever we want a Saturday nice lunch time and we have always have had the best service and food. Maybe because we have not been there in a very busy time. The food is a kind of upscale tex-mex with decent portion size (not those overfull plate that... More

we went there tonight for our daughter's graduation - the food was terrible and the service was terrible - they had a special menu with only 4 selections because of graduation night but they still managed to completely mess it up - several tables were so upset they simply left the place - we should have done the same thing

Not only was he a blast to talk to, but he also gave us great recommendations... More

Well I will start off with the good. Atmosphere is amazing & wait staff was super nice. Drinks were good & the brunch menu had a good variety. Now, it took us a while to have someone greet us but that wasn't too big of a deal. We ordered right when we received our drinks but by the time we... More

Its a very nice place with a attentive wait staff. We ate outdoors which is nice but kids can come through the restaurant on their way to the swimming pool. Some of them did so dripping wet. Not what you'd expect but no big deal. Food was good and prices were too. Very pleasant wait staff and all around good... More

I didn't get these reviews. There was nothing particularly special about the food which included perhaps the worst hamburger I've ever eaten. The French fries were however among the best. The stuffed avocado relied heavily on a bag of corn chips poured on top. Finish it with weak drinks from the bar. Wasted meal in the land of good food.
