Loved the chicken chimichanga. Chips and salsa were ok. Food came out fast and service was attentive.

We stopped in for happy hour and Charmaine was our server. She was super attentive, funny and friendly. The margaritas were yummy and so were the hot poppers and mini tacos. We will definitely go back again when we visit Ely next year.
