Service was good , prices good, food was average. They do have a fairly large menu but was kind of bland. I thought the chips had no flavor. Only my opinion as they seemed fairly busy

The food was good, standard Mexican food, nothing to write home about, but it was good and I would eat here again. As is sometimes typical multi-tasking the host was on the phone for a while before ending the call and seating me. The restaurant...More
