We ate there twice last week. First time had some kind of good nachos and service. Second time it was busy. Service was very slow and the food was just OK. They seem to cater to the larger groups. Next night we ate at Lalo's...More

Not a bar, not quite a restaurant. Do you miss that local restaurant in your home town that always underwhelms you? Come here! Get a sub par dinner in a strip mall that is under construction and enjoy your dinner surrounded by 55-75 year old...More

We went here for some fajitas and beer; the food was excellent but the restaurant was so busy the waiters were flying around at top speed. It was hard to get their attention. The ambience was extremely loud.
