Good food. Close to our hotel. Easy to get to. Friendly staff that helped save us a few dollars by suggesting a different order to fit what we really wanted.

We ate here our first night in town. The restaurant was in a strip mall and had plenty of parking. No one addressed us when we walked in and it was probably 4 to 5 minutes before they did. We ordered a couple of pitchers of margaritas and they were decent. Our food was a little slow to come out... More
