Great Tex Mex food and reasonably priced one of my favorite restaurants. Go early because there is usually a wait.

The food is literally to die for! I have tried almost EVERYTHING on the menu, but my favorite will always be the shrimp and craw fish quesadillas (YUMM). I would order those with the mango margarita and be a happy camper. The only reason I...More

Great place to get either Tex-Mex or Cajun. Prices are very reasonable and the food is great! There is a wait most of the time but well worth it!

They don't do reservations. This place is too busy all the time. Unless you talk to a manager and go before or after a select time.

The kids menu is great and they are good variety. All the kids meals come with a candy dessert and I don't think any are more than $5. Most times my boys have left overs for next day lunch.
