Everyone raves about it but I don't see it. The food is OK - but - not exceptional. The thing that really takes away points is that EVERYTHING is ala carte or extra cost. Even corn chips or extra salsa costs more

Love this place. My family goes there on a weekly basis. It's not fancy, but the food is great. You have to try the Guacamole - it's amazing.
