I have been going to this restaurant on a regular basis for years, so it has to be good. The service is fast and friendly. Over time I have had many of the items and found them all excellent. On a previous visit could not...More

Ordered chicken wings as an appetizer- all fat and couldn't eat them. Wife order soup that was so spicy it was inedible, fajitas only average, as was the service

Went here for the first time with a group of 7. Fantastic top shelf margaritas to start and the chips and salsa were great! Our waitress was excellent as well. The food was fast, hot and delicious!! Great visit. We will be back soon!

Went here for a friends birthday. Big group of us mad the service was good. Friendly and quick. Food was good as well. It was a good visit but just didn't stand out to me. Can't say I would go back for any reason.
