Busy but very short wait. Waitress was great, restaurant was very clean (as were the restrooms!), and food was excellent.

I always get Fajitas when we try a new Mexican restaurant, on the theory that they are hard to screw up. They managed to do that. Chicken was very dry, the beef very chewy.

Had lunch here today with some friends. I would classify the food as average. The service was friendly. I had a chimmichunga and its taste and texture were similar to microwaved food.
