This is an excellent place to eat and socialize. Chips and salsa were amazing. I had the chicken enchiladas and my friend the spinach ones. Both meals were wonderful. Came to the table with a yellow corn and cheese salsa over the enchiladas and were fabulous! Can't wait to go back when in Houston again.
