I love going here. The wait staff is so fast and attentive. The food is very good with generous portions. Drinks are yummy too--the large Margarita's are GREAT. Prices are very resonable. I always look forward to eating here.

This is a great restaurant in South Boston and it was actually OPEN on a Monday. The staff is friendly, the food is delicious and the decor is beautiful. Think Texas & Mexico.
