This place came highly recommended, however I’m not sure why. The food was not very good and service was slow. We finally got our bill but had to run our waiter down to give him our money so we could leave.

We had a nice dinner with great service. The chips are always fresh and love the warm salsa. Nice large portions.

We wanted a light lunch and ordered what we thought would be smaller meals (salads and soup combos and small quesadillas) and were surprised by the huge portions delivered to the table! Great value although we could have easily shared our meals. Everything was fresh...More
