Went on Friday night and happy hour menu. We had nachos and beer, just perfect on a hot July night. Nice crowd, good service. Return? Yes. Recommend? Yes.

Food is average, atmosphere is average, but service can be dramatically bi-polar. The female owner is just as comfortable screaming loudly and cussing out customers as she is sweetly smiling at them. There is better Mexican food and much healthier service to be found in...More
