We ate lunch here and I had the chimichanga and it was great with a salad with guacamole and refried beans and the margaritas are great especially at 2 for 1 prices.

Tried one of the Thursday Lunch specials and 2 for 1 house margaritas. Food was good, service was fast, drink was reasonable. Not crowded. Back room for large parties. Worth checking out.

So we were driving by this place and the sign said "2 for 1 Margaritas" so we thought we would stop in and try them out for dinner. The price for the single Margaritas was a whopping $14. Of course they give you the second...More

Nothing special. We went for drinks & dessert. Fried ice cream was ice cream rolled in corn flakes.... ummmm no, just no. For the size of the margarita glass I should have been tanked (I’m pretty sensitive to alcohol) so if you like chugging overly...More
