We've eaten twice here and haven't been disappointed. It's a tad pricey but worth it. They will make fresh gauc at your table. The staff are very friendly. Plenty of seating and choices on the menu.

My wife and I love eating here. It is our favorite Mexican rest. We have tried many dishes and they are good. They also don't skimp on the portion size either. Very friendly staff

We arrived at 5:00 pm for an early dinner on a Saturday and glad we did that because it was already hopping. First off, let me say my summer alcoholic beverage of choice (this year anyway) is a blended margarita and these were great!
