It was empty at lunch time, maybe because it was black Friday. The food is not impressive, but not bad. Yo can compare it with Chillies

I hate to give this place only three stars, but I have to say something. I used to come to this place all the time and I loved it. The food was great, the service was spot on, everyone was happy. Recently though, it hasn't been this way. The food is NOT fresh. The freshest thing in that restaraunt is... More

We have eaten twice in this restaurant over the last three nights.

The chips were made with old oil..the plates are incredibly small for what your paying. I ordered two orders of their chicken fajita tacos. The tortillas were stail and worst of all there was almost no chicken or even veggies in the tacos. The slab of white dry rice that they slabed on was terrible..I felt disrespected.
