Seafood Encheladas were cold and watered down. Not good. Service has 50/50. Could improve on not hitting on girls while eating. We are there for lunch and we are all married.

We we first walked in I was not impressed. We waited for several minutes without any of the staff acknowledging us. Once seated the menus are old and faded to the point of not being able to read it. But once we ordered our food...More

Had a dinner here as it seemed easily within walking distance from Doubletree Hotel in downtown, even though it was -6F (-21C) [with windchill, -24F (-31C)] in Cedar Rapids at the time of the restaurant visit. Great juicy and tasty Fajitas, friendly service, inviting atmosphere!...More
