Our family if 16 had a wonderful dinner. Service was attentive. House margarita is to die for. And the food is creamy, flavorful and a party on your palate.

This restaurant has always had good food but the service was hit or miss. It seems that has all changed not that there are new owners. They have taken it from Good to Great! Very pleased with our dinner & service we recieved!

I did not care for the menu choices or the taste of the food. I did not like the Queso and Too many cactus dishes. The enchiladas were not the best. The service was not great. If you love only Chihuahua cheese and chorizo ,...More
