Not staffed well and as a result, our first experience at the new location was not positive. Seated after a 10 minute wait on a sunday night, and then waited 10 minutes to see a waitress and asked for wine glasses and when she finally...More

We were vacationing in a condo just down from Lex Mex and just had to go in. Nice place for lunch. Food was good and portions were large. Glad we stopped in.
