Don't expect great things from this place. It is average food at best and the margaritas are fairly weak. We had to ask for an extra shot of tequila and we're not big drinkers.

We ordered the breakfast burrito and Santa Fe scramble to go. Both were very good especially the green chili sauce!

This place is fantastic! They probably have the best margarita happy hour I have ever experienced. Our server was great and attentive even though they were busy. I forgot the girls name but she was very friendly.

Small dishes, low quality ingredients, very industrial taste. Waitress is nice, but the place doesn't look inviting. Kids meals are relatively expensive for what you get. One dish, no drink. No coke! Only Pepsi.

I was surprised for the insight, excellent deco, food taste good The menu is hard to read,it's really hard to read due to the colors,staff is really active,maybe because of the weather they were full staff, really popular for the locals.
