I go here about once a week, service is always great and food is the best in town. The salsa bar is by far my favorite. If you go try the warm fajita salad or fajita tacos...you won't be disappointed.

This restaurant is always busy but you never have to wait for long. The food is delicious and the portions are plentiful. We often split an entree and still leave full. The salsa bar has something for everyone. My favorite item is the carne asada....More

We will not go to this restaurant again! Lots of food no flavor. Very salty. You will not get good food at this restaurant. I will say, the table side guacamole was good.

Parking lot parking. Wait was minimal because it is cafeteria style seating. I felt crammed in to eat. It smells like burnt fajitas. The food was okay. Service was okay.
