This was not good - we ordered the fajitas and there were baby strips of meat. The service was awful. Why can't Mexicans make good food for a restaurant ?

We go here often. Food is always ok and you can almost always get a table without a wait. Staff is not what it used to be a couple of years ago but they are ok.

Split a combo meal. More than enough for two. With medium drink for one, cost was less than $30. Nice staff. Would definitely recommend.

This restaurant has a patio which is great this time of year. Every one on our part had great food...vegetarian quesadilla, barbacoa burrito and grilled chicken tacos. The servers were friendly and the food delivered promptly. Priced well.
