Stopped in for dinner and drinks. The margaritas were average but good. The food was nothing spectacular. Basic and good tasting. The service left a lot to be desired. It's okay...but not my first choice for the future.

Out of town visitors who picked this place at random. Good prices, 2 for 1 drink specials all day, good food, too. The place was noisy from one group that was celebrating but our oversized margaritas helped to blunt that.

Walking distance from Marriott Courtyard. Delicious chicken and beef fajitas and California burrito. They serve decent 2 for 1 margaritas. We had the sweetest waiter. He was attentive and we enjoyed our conversations with him. Time we'll spent.
