I concur with the other positive reviews. I stopped after 8:30 on a Tuesday night on business travel and they were open until 10. Attentive friendly service, a good large margarita, plenty of food at a very reasonable price, tasty, and I had to get a box to take home the leftovers because there was so much. Very convenient place.

Terrific dinner, pleasant and very efficient staff. Moderate and very fair prices. This was a stop en route to Florida. Knew nothing of it, but glad we tried it. The marguerita was huge. Generous portions.

I moved here from New York and cannot believe the prices here. Margaritas are $2.50. You can pay less than $20 for two dinners, and drinks. Besides being well priced, the food is good too.

Decent food. We split a beef fajita which came out quickly and was piping hot. Margaritas okay & Corona was well chilled. Flan was tasty. Salsa okay, chips warm n fresh. Place was hopping but food came out quickly. Locals seem to love it. Beautiful Shoney's which was swamped with lines out the door.
