I'm bumping my rating up to three stars based on my positive experiences at this particular restaurant in the past; if I were to give a rating based solely on this recent experience, I would leave 2 at the most. The restaurant itself is fine,...More

Atmosphere is super casual, lots of TVs showing various sporting events. Server was friendly and attentive. Food was really good, I had the Baja tacos and Ranchero beans. Decent price, I will definitely go back again.
