Lunch with Special Friend's

Munched on the bowl of chips and salsa, both tasty. Taco's and beans were ok, needed to add the salsa for more flavor. Maybe I should... More

We have had dinner here a number of times. Food is usually good, drinks and food are a little pricey which keeps us from going there more.

Great place for good tex-mex food. Good variety on the menu. Service is very fast, and friendly. Excellent selection of draft beers. Outdoor dining available on the patio. Everything we have tried on multiple visits has been very good.

We have gone there for lunch twice now and it is OK. As with so many other Mexican restaurants, the food just is NOT the same as it is when eating the same meal in Mexico. Trust me, we have lived in Mexico! Don't get me wrong, the food here is good, it just doesn't taste the same. Probably the... More

What a great place to stop in for lunch. Fantastic lunch menu. Awesome burritos served in substantial portions with refried beans, sauce, rice. Complimentary chips and salsa. We have gone many times. Always consistently good. Haven't gone there for a evening meal but we'll get there eventually.
