The food was good and the service was excellent. I was hungry so the filling meal hit the spot. Prices are a little high compared to other chains and independents. I loved the salsa that came with the chips.;

Happy hour madness, margarita's by the glass and steak, chicken or pork hot of the grill. If you haven't gone yet, you have to give them a try.
