We ate here in 2013 and will not return. The service was horrible and the food was abominable. Please go elsewhere.

Outstanding fresh fish soup appetizer for only $4 and red snapper in choice of wonderful sauces for lunch with rice and fresh veggies only 12.95. Three other family members had more traditional fajitas and taco dinners that they too said we're exceptionally good. Fresh made guacamole appetizer was the best. Friendly service and linen table cloth environment felt upscale and... More

Very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The food is very good. Authentic and nicely seasoned. The staff is very helpful. I experienced working with them for a catered order for a school dance and they were very helpful and accommodating.

I should've checked TA first! The waitress was in her own world and inattentive. Our orders came out wrong, the food was lousy and the final bill was wrong! So yourself a favor and find someplace else to eat!
