The picture above is called Chipotle Burrito- awesome; as are most dishes. I have often closed my eyes and pointed to a menu item, and be very pleased with my random selection.

We found this place while on vacation 2 months ago. Since then my husband has gone back several times, and then we just went back on Monday. The food is wonderful, and you definitely get your money's worth. I also enjoy the staff, they are nice and helpful. Thank you for a wonderful atmosphere to enjoy our meal.

The service was friendly and prompt. They had drink specials and I tried their margaritas and their house made sangria and both were good. The margarita and a little to much sweet and sour, but after a couple sips my taste buds adjusted. I got the fish tacos and they were okay. I wish they would come with lettuce and... More
