We do visit here often. Weekly special has a BOGO menu, cash only. Food is always good. Portions are nice size. House salad is great. Sangria is delicious. Staff is great and friendly. We usually request Alyssa she treats us like family.

This place has good food, friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. During the week (Monday to Thursday), they have 2 for 1 dinners. My husband orders mama's sunday dinner and loves it. I had the shrimp in a cognac sauce that was delicious and they served it on top of gluten free pasta. Yum!

I don't know what we really expected but to us our dinner was boring. Once we were served, we ate, paid the bill and left. while the dinner was good it just didn't stand out like we thought it would. Oh well, maybe next time.
