I asked for the corn tortillas and had to call the waitress over because they looked like small flour tortillas. The manager said they were new "better" gluten free corn tortillas. Guess what, they were terrible and gave me a stomach ache. If I wanted a gluten free wheat tortilla, I would have asked for this. Is it really too... More

The main dinning room gets noisy , I usually try to sit by the windows , but it is wide open and when it is packed it is hard to talk . If they divided the room up a bit it would cut down on the noise. Burrito's are very good , Fajita's are also very good , there is... More

I was pleasantly surprised at the unique menu: old favorites with Jambalaya rice. I had the seafood enchiladas. They were chock full of crab and shrimp covered with a light cajun cream sauce. YUM. The only drawback is the noise. Lots of tables packed into a very large room. Well worth it, though, as the prices are very reasonable.

Not big on chain type restaurants but this place is pretty good. Nice size portions and reasonable prices. Always pretty busy, if you are going for dinner on the weekend get there early.

We go here very often. Great family restaurant no matter how large your group is. Although we do not drink the drinks are very reasonable. Food is always very good although not gourmet. Young wait staff, mostly college students, who are there before you need them! Management is well run.

We eat here once or twice a month. The fajitas are amazing, and we are picky about what we say is good food. It's usually busy on weekends, but worth the wait. Our typical bill for me, my wife and daughter is $40-45...and that's including a margarita! Can't beat that, especially since it's such good food. The atmosphere is great,... More

Shared meals with friends of mine who had not seen in awhile. The service was good and the menu was extensive. The meals were served hot and the price was very reasonable. There was a lot of people so it was on the noisy side. We had a good time, and they did not seem to rush us.

Great food, well prepared. You can specify if you want it very spicy or very light on the spice. Food tastes great. It is a bit noisy but that is part of the fun!
