Not a great meal with the family, boringly blend food, no spices, even when asked for hot sauce, the only thing they came up with was some lame pepper sauce. Not enough meat. The margarita I had was as small as double espresso only.

The restaurant has an excellent location and ambiance. It was very busy on the Friday night we visited with three teenagers and a dog. The service was good and the meals were very fast.
