When you want excellent Mexican food, come to this place. The food was fantastic and the service by Craig was excellent as well. It was moderately priced and the views are very nice. We were immediately seated and the staff was very attentive.

This place was really really good! The chips and guac were SOOOOO yummy. They have a kids menu as well with non-mexican food on it, which is great because my kids are picky. Nice view too!

I didn't order it but saw it served, looked like everything but the kitchen sink. I believe you can pick your protein either beef or chicken. It was piled high.
