Really good food and pretty good service! Not crowded at all, and we got our food fast. The waiter seemed new, so he was a little slow getting our bill, but that's understandable. Will be going back definitely!

The food was tasty, sports bar fare with a hint of Mexico. I had a wonderful burger with jalapenos, the fries were good. Good environment for watching sports.
