It typically takes longer than we expect to get our food. The chips and salsa and coloring pages are good distractions for our wait. I appreciate the menu items that offer ‘healthier choices’

So disappointed in this restaurant! The waitress was very friendly but service was terrible. The food took forever and was definitely not worth the wait. My salad was stale and really disappointed in everything else. We will definitely NOT go back.

The service and food was not as good as the last time we went to this restaurant. We waited for our food approximately 35 minutes, and our food was cold.

This restaurant wasn't all that its hyped up to be but is still pretty good food. Food was a bit bland and if you want flavor must add spicy salsa!

My advice would be to run for the border and stop at another restaurant along the way. The service was great and is the reason I gave a score of 2 out of 5. The rice and beans are now served family style but they...More
