Great service, margaritas and fajitas at decent prices. I didn't care for the quesadillas because they were made with corn tortillas and I'm used to (and prefer) flour but my fault for not asking. We had an early dinner, around 5:30, on a Wednesday night and didn't have to wait to be seated.

Went here on a Monday "date night" with my boyfriend. We had been here before and thought it was "okay" and that pretty much sums it up. Staff that just isn't warm, welcoming or caring (although, when we left, I have to admit that our waitress FINALLY showed some brightness), doesn't make up for average food. The chips and salsa?...

Great meal, great staff. Parking one block away. Paid $17.00 for a couple of hours. The price of the meal was reasonable and the food was very fresh and good. They make food from scratch. Nice size, nice portions. Would go again.
