I've eaten in this restaurant on numerous occasions, and I've never been disappointed. The food always comes out hot, and service is what I expect, but I can't really say that it has ever exceeded my expectations. The portions are fairly large, and my favorite drink is the horchata, which is rice juice. This restaurant has live entertainment in the... More

We were in the mood for some great Mexican food so found this place listed on Trip Advisor as a choice in the area. We ordered Margarita's which were being featured for their happy hour special and they were fantastic!! The best ever. Then we ordered our dinners, but were not that impressed when it arrived. The combo platters were... More
