“Smoking in a restaurant it's 2014 people!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

This is being rated lower mainly for the fact that they allow smoking in the restaurant. This is a big deal for me. Main reason, unless you have a separate building or an enclosed space for the smokers, you smell cigarette smoke. The meal might have been ok had I been able to taste it and not smell cigarette smoke my whole meal.
The wait staff was nice and friendly.

“Love the fajitas here.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Service is fast and friendly, the food is hot, tasty and filling. I usually order the fajitas and have enough left over for lunch the next day. The free salsa and chips are good- be careful or you'll eat too many!

The restaurant was close to several hotels (within walking distance) and had good food and really good service. We were pleasantly surprised.

“Bland Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The decor and help are nice. The problem to me is the food is too bland for my liking. I expect more spice on Mexican food. The prices are average.
