Consistently tasty food at good prices. Tried late afternoon so we could linger and chat with friends joining us. Worked much better than early afternoon where it seemed in the past that staff was rushing us out, despite empty tables.

I went here for dinner with a friend and we had a great dinner. I had the fajita and she had tacos. The food was good, the place was clean and the staff was friendly. I would eat here again, hopefully soon!

Wow, Mario, is the man. Asked what was good. He hooked me up with Margarita and chicken fajitas. Outstanding! Good food good prices. I looked at some reviews, you people need to stick with Taco Bell, because this food and service was great. Recommended!!!
