The food was ok, but I've liked the mexican food better at a number of other places. The patio dinning was fun, but only because the weather was perfect. Summer and winter probably not so much.

Best sopapillas anywhere. Fish tacos on Friday are my fav. Also has great breakfast. Don't be afraid to ask them to mix it up. They will put the vegitarian beans and spinach in the tacos or sopapillas!
