The chicken torta is my all time favorite sandwich. The spicy shrimp torta is also great. You have to try the Popsicles for dessert. The pecan Popsicle and the strawberries and cream Popsicle are my favorites.

We asked about how the margaritas were made. She said the house margarita was made with patron tequila. We ordered a small to start with, then we ordered a medium. The medium came in a nicer glass, but both were exactly the same ounces. We...More

I don't typically like green salsa, but one bite of this green salsa, and I couldn't stop! My husband liked his food very much. My chile relleno was ok, but a little cold. Service was slow, but the serenade on a Sunday afternoon was lovely!

We were excited to try this place. We get there and the patio was empty and it was awesome out so we choose to sit out side. Which was nice and had lots of colorful and interesting people to watch along the busy intersection. This...More
