“Was awesome but...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Used to love going here and WAS a personal fave BUT when I almost choked on a chicken bone in a Quesadilla I ate and was sharing with my young daughter, it became a problem when I wrote the owners to let them know and totally ignored! I let the server guy know what happened that day and all I was told was that this could happen and I was not even offered a discount!!! When things like this happen at other places they go to all lengths of even offering to take off bill but not even a discount offered and then not a reply back all this time, over a month, from so called owners. NOT GOOD! So thought I would now write finally.

“Go else where”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

It was a busy Sunday and they had only one person serving and the staff was really surly with us - the chicken qusidillas i had were mediocre at best. My sister became violently I'll within a few hours of eating here and we're pretty sure it was the food she ate here.

“relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

After a hot, busy, dry day sit down on the outside patio and relax. Enjoy an ice cold Corona (or what ever you like) with a heaping plate of nachos. Service is very friendly and quick. Perfect way to finish a day.

“Becarefull !!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

I saw the inside of the preparation of the food. First of all the food been cook in the morning, the prep of the Veges, the mix beef and chicken sit on a old pizza stove where it will sit over the day, cant believe a food inspector never shut these doors, a lots of deseases can make you really sick.
Secondo, the counters and the dish pit never is sanytize the proper way, the water of the dish pit should be clean and change at all the time, the counters are not sanityze by any products only warm water, even after fish touch sometime vegetables, that was it can make you really sick.
Third,
For the Fajitas, during the day, many orders will be bringning in and sometime the fajitas is not fresh and will be in your plate, everything to make money from the waste.

Finally,
The counter is sometime full of ice but during the night the chicken the beef and many others, are not in the ice and it will be sitting on the counters for fews hours... Dont have to tell you how bad the food will affect your stomach after eated.
