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 were waited by the bar server as we decided to sit at the bar. However, during our time here, I noticed that the bar server was nit only ckeaning up the... More

We have eaten twice in this restaurant over the last three nights. On choosing what to eat I told our waitress, Jamie, that I was a non meat eater and she was able to help me make the right choices and showed that the restaurant had great flexibility in mixing and matching dishes and she steered me clear of any...

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.

Been there twice and don't think I'll ever go back. Portions are salty as heck. Not sure if they actually call this Mexican food because it sure is not. They serve a good Margarita though and have good beer selection. Food lacks authenticity and flavor, not salt!

We ate a late lunch at the restaurant. My husband said his meal of enchiladas was delicious. I had the enchiladas and chile relleno's and it was very good. The atmosphere was casual and nice. Prices were fair for lunch, they had specials. We would go back again.
