Restaurant was not crowded, and service was very slow. The waitress disappeared for lengthy periods. My chicken was like a piece of rubber. The chips and salsa are excellent.

You can always count on receiving good service and good food at this restaurant. The lunch specials are a great bargain and if you are in a hurry, you'll always receive your food quickly. The rice and bean are just ok, but the entrees are...More
