We have been eating at this restaurant for many years and this is my first review on them. Over the past year we have been experiencing poor service and poor food. I'm not sure what is going on with them, but it is a big...More

My wife and I eat here at least once a week. The service is always good. As soon as you set down there is a basket of fresh chips and salsa on the table. The margaritas are excellent. The food is always fresh and served...More
