The staff has always been very friendly with the exception of this last time we went. The hostess seemed to be a bit irritated because we asked for a larger booth but... More

We stopped at the bar for a bite to eat before a concert at DTE. Corona's were great and the guacamole was really good, but the tortilla soup was cold and not all that tasty. Otherwise, we have a fine experience.

We stumbled on this place when visiting Great Lakes Crossing. Food was tasty - spicy and hot. Very reasonably priced and excellent service. The free nachos and salsa were a nice addition to them meal. Their salsa is hotter than one would normally expect in a restaurant from my experience.

Went there on Wed at 3.00 it was Fajitas Wed, which means you get a dinner size for lunch prices till 4.00. I split this meal(chicken) with my wife and it was large enough to feed both of us. It was delicious, perfectly cooked. The free nacho's and salsa was also very good. I am a salsa snob, we make... More

Sorry, I can't comment on the food, because the hostess was very rude and we left. We tried to ask a question when first seated, but she just walked off without even asking us if we needed anything or telling us who our wait staff would be. When we asked waitress if the buffet was still available at 2:05 hostess... More
