This was a good experience and the price was reasonable. They serve chip with bean dip when you have been placed at your table. They have a big cocktail bar where they serve good longdrinks.

The food is fresh and delicious! There is a salsa bar in the back left corner, which your waiter may not tell you. (Ours did not, but I read about it on this web site.) The fresh guacamole (made tableside) is awesome!!

Stopped here based on reviews. Have to agree the place is very good. The free chips are served with a bean dip not salsa. WOW worth the stop just for the dip. I tried mini-chimis with 3 different meats. SKIP the chicken. Pork was ok....More
