Good food and service

Great casual dining spot if you're in the mood for Mexican food. I've eaten here numerous times and have few complaints. The free chips and salsa are a great way to take the edge off your appetite. On our most recent trip we ordered the chicken and pulled beef burros, steak fajitas and some... read more

Stopped in for a margarita with a friend and ended up having appetizers and dinner at the bar. Bar staff was efficient, but not overly friendly. Margaritas were good. Appetizers we had the blackened chicken which was too spicy and the camptown shrimp which I excepted to be spicy and was. For dinner i had the steak fajita which was... More

Terrible service at this restaurant, manager was not helpful at all, I would never go there again. We asked for a large group table for a team-building event, it was denied, and we all had to sit at separate tables. i called ahead and let them know that our large party was coming and they didn't do anything to accommodate...

This is a popular place with reasonable prices but our Tex-Mex and Cajun food selections disappointed. A good frozen Margarita was dispensed from the machine and the soda came in a 32 oz. glass reminiscent of a "Big Gulp" with free refills. The plastic menu should have been cleaned. The chips were thick, warm, and salty but the salsa was... More

Food is really tasty and plentiful. Portabello mushroom fajits is delicious and also enjoyed the mixed taco dinner. Drinks are large and place has a very family atmosphere

We go here about 8-9 times a year (my wife and I eat out every Sat. nite and most Sun. nites). Rustic southwest(Tex-Mex) look and Tex-Mex food. 2 people eating dinner and our bill is always $40 or less. The food is very good and you get unlimited free chips and salsa before dinner. Always have a doggy-bag when leaving.... More

Second time eating here and it was as good as I remembered. Started out with the pastelitos, chicken wrapped in a pie crust type dough served with thier chimiverdi sauce, sooo good. I had the Salmon San Sebastián, comes with rice, mixed greens and a small cup of the chimiverdi sauce, Excellent! Well worth the 14.95 price. Others with me... More

Small tables if all four in your party order fajitas. Tex-mex and Cajun under one roof.... kind of different. Flavors mingle a little between different dishes, need to separate them as their own. Okay for Jersey, wouldn't stand in Texas or Louisiana.
