Nice decor and clean. Service quick and friendly. They checked back often. The food was good and there was plenty of it. If you go there get a piece crispy cornbread. Maybe even two because it is outstanding. I will go back.

We arrived a little after the lunch rush, and there were still quite a few patrons. The place is very dimly lit, which takes a moment to adjust to, but once you do it is very festive!

The inside is bright, colorful, clean and larger than it appears. The four of us enjoyed the chips and salsa and ample, delicious platters of food for dinner. Service was fast and friendly.

I travel weekly to Mt. Vernon and am a little burned out on the restaurNts. I'm not sure why I hadn't tried this little find before. Great chips and salsa, everything fresh. I had the tortilla soup that was INCREDIBLE for $6.99. Lots of chicken, flavorful broth, fresh avocado and lime. It was just so delicious! Two trips, both very... More
