Cesar.. he was the best. After a terrible experience during a jeep rental (see other review) we stopped here to get our minds off of it and regroup. Cesar was very friendly and saw to us right way.

The food was very good. The guacamole was a little bland but the chicken nachos well made up for the guacamole. The prices were comparable to others. The Mexican Fanta Soda is a must.
