“Not so good....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Okay, my standards are high. I like to have my fajitas served hot and sizzling on a platter. Both my wife and I got the fajitas (chicken and carne asada) served on a room temperature plate and it was obvious that the onions, tomatos, meat, and peppers were cooked separately and combined on the plate... not even mixed together. The lettuce and cheese were hardly visible. The plate was LOADED with green bell peppers... the dish may as well have been named "green bell pepper fajitas". There was loud Mexican music playing, not even good songs. I asked the waiter if there were black beans available... the answer was not, but he was not so nice about it.

Now for the good stuff.... um... all the food tasted fair and it was not overcooked. Spices... what spices? Oh, I liked the salsa, it was tasty. So if you want decent salsa, go to this place.

Stopped here on our way south. Hotel recommended, we were very pleasantly surprised. Very clean, good soft tacos and burritos. Salsa with just the right bite.

“Great food, great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I'm so glad we have a nice place to take friends when they visit. We have eaten here several times and love the food, decor, atmosphere and the service. Prices are also reasonable.
