I have been here a few times. I find the staff knowledgeable about their menu and happy to make recommendations based on what you like if you chat with them. Their guacamole was fresh made as was their salsa. Their street corn is the best...More

Two out of the four of us enjoyed our food, but then we saw a huge roach/palmetto bug crawl up the wall and fall on my daughter. I stepped on it and didn't make a big deal. Daughter couldn't eat after that. Also service was...More
