This was literally attached to the hotel so it was easy to get to and from. The food is good and the prices are as well. You can sit outside and see all of the town.

The Mexican food served at this restaurant is great. The staff is very attentive to your order and very friendly. They are generally playing Mexican music--which I like. Not as crowded as some of the other restaurants; therefore, your meal is served quickly.
