Great food here. Always great staff and great drinks. Never a bad meal in 10+ years. Suggest you try many items as they are all great.

I’ve gone here mostly on weekends for dinner. The food is good and so are the margaritas. The only problem I have with this restaurant is I usually have to wait in a small waiting area to get a table. Service could be a little...More
