There were nine in our group, therefore, we had to wait about 25 minutes for two tables to put together. The wait staff was very accommodating and polite. The food was good, but nothing to blow our minds.

It was a nice lunch with a very nice server. She seemed a little stretched so I think she may have had too many tables. The salsa was not hot and if you wanted hotter salsa it costed an extra dollar. The food was pretty...More
