“Nice Lunch Buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The buffet is such a good deal that I have never had anything else. The flan is especially good. There is outdoor dining during pleasant weather.

“Great atmosphere and margaritas.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

This is a wonderful place with great service and great margaritas. I live nearby, and I frequent this place maybe two times a month.

It's a comfortable atmosphere for both friends and families. The margaritas are reasonably priced and delicious. The fajita quesadilla is one of my favorites, it's basically a cheese crisp/open faced quesadilla.

The bar/tv area is more open and a bit louder which is located upstairs, but there is seating on the first floor that is much more quiet and intimate with booths. There is also seating outside which looks absolutely lovely on a warm night!
