My husband and I came here for dinner after a long day of traveling, and we had such a lovely experience. Atmosphere on the patio was beautiful, food was delicious, and the margaritas were refreshing! Our server Teresa went the extra mile to make sure...we felt welcomed and were well taken care of. Great experience overall!More

Had a great experience there last night as usual. We drive a half hour just to eat here. Great atmosphere as always. Sit outside if you can. It’s a covered porch area. Chloe R was wonderful.

Owners are very rude! Prices are outrageous and food is only sub par for the price. They came to the empty waiting area and asked that my 4 year old stop climbing on the cushions of their indoor patio furniture. After we were seated at...the table each time my little one got out of his chair to stand for a moment, the owner would stare us down. It's almost like my child with special needs was a nuisance to their establishment. My child wasn't loud nor running around the room being loud. He simply struggles to sit still for long periods of time and needs to stretch his legs often. We are working on this with him and would never allow him to disturb other guests. So it is truly heartbreaking and outrageous that we felt like such outcasts to dine here. NEVER AGAIN.More

We are sorry you felt this way at it was definitely not our intention but it simply unsafe to have a child standing on furniture that is not secured and only intended for sitting on. If your child were to accidentally fall from climbing around...More

Food was delicious! Chicken tenders were huge and juicy. I ordered 2 tacos with chips and queso and a house margarita and it was only $13! Teresa was our server and she was wonderful! We ordered a carrot cake to go and while we haven’t...tried it yet it is large and covered in Carmel sauce so I’m quite exited to try it!More
