Restaurant was very busy Sunday. There were 3 of us who ate lunch - cheese dip was excellent, large portions at a good price. Wait staff was very slow.

Really good prices... lots of food on the plate. Get a doggy box... you'll need it. Enchiladas were tasty and the tostadas were crunchy. Good rice and beans too.

Great lunch, we had steak fajita salads. Good chips and salsa. Only thing was waitress messed up our ticket. She put 8.99 for pico de gallo which was more than the price of our salads which were only 7.99. But she gladly fixed it and apologized so glad we were looking. Good lunch.
