Brought out of town guests for a late dinner and could not believe the actions of the hostess. Besides not being courteous, she was dancing around like a small child at a sleepover. Rapping and joking around, I thought this was a restaurant not a playground!

Consistently good food and service. The Chango platter is an awesome appetizer. The Dos-rita's are well worth it, love the margarita and beer mixture. This is one of my favorite Tex-Mex restaurants in this area.

Only difficult thing about going to this restaurant is deciding which entree to pick, I have 4 or 5 favorites. Their margaritas are a bit pricey, usually stay away from them, but the food is reasonable, in line with other restaurants, and excellent. The shrimp and mango salad wonderful. So is their Marisco bowl. Great queso.

Best Margarita I ever had. I ordered the peach frozen Margarita and the mix fajita. Loved the flower tortillas very different that what I was use to. Very kid friendly restaurant and free soft serve ice cream for everyone!

Our grand daughters love Jimmy Changas for the queso, quesadillas and free ice cream. My wife and I eat the combo fajitas for 2 and are never disappointed. Service is always good but the atmosphere can be a little loud. One of our favorite places.

After a long week this is the best place for margaritas and the best fish tacos ever. They have a great dinning and bar. The out side has a playground for kids and a great waterfall and fore wall to relax by. Best food with lots of choices.
