We stopped here for a quick bite in the middle of the afternoon. The restaurant was clean and the staff friendly. We had chips and salsa delivered to the table as soon as we sat down. Our food was good and the prices mid range.

The food was greasy, the management was horrible. I would not eat there again or recommend. Try the Mexican restaurant right down the street. Mi Margaritas its much better.
