This place has gone downhill gradually over the years. They still have the same old dirty rubber tablecloths ... Tremendous fly problem that makes it uncomfortable to eat and or have a conversation. Good fajitas one day, very dry the next. Inconsistent. Terrible happy hour....More

We went here for dinner one evening. Food was average at best. Low lighting so it was at times difficult to see the menu. Good, not great.
