I went to celebrate my mom's birthday and spend some family time, but it was not what I expected. Totally disappointed!!! Foods with bad looks and taste worse. Definitely would not return ever. I lost my money and my time.

The service was very good, prices are great and the servings are huge. The service was faster than i expected judging for the amount of people that were eating. The waitress was very helpful and courteous. We have a very good time without expending a lot and the food was delicios. Well be back soon....I recomend it to everybody.
