Went here for our last night in the area and it was not bad. It's a basic little place with good, tasty food. Great salsa bar too with some good hot sauces!

Family has been here 20times or so...and always have had great meals! Refined beans are home made and delicious... and their salsa bar is filled with a variety of fresh and tasty salsas! Definitely a top SLT dining spot that won’t break the bank either!

Always see cars in the parking lot, so we decided to try it for dinner. That was our mistake. For lunch, it would be okay. We live in So Cal so have a lot of Mexican food. This was okay.....but the ambience like the Margaritas........there...More
