Food is not special, standard chain fare. Nice ambiance and capable of producing enjoyable nights with friends.

Have not been here in years as their previous menu was lacking, but recieved a gift card for Christmas and went to the new location last night. New menu is fantastic! It was actually hard to decide with so many great options! We took advantage of the Thursday 6.95$ appetizers which we were shocked to find applied to all appetizers and small nachos with no limit to how many you purchased like many other restaurants. For 50$ we had 6 different dishes thinking they would be small as they we were appetizers. We were wrong! The servings were large! My boyfriend can eat a lot an we has plenty of leftovers. Food was very tasty. Like the new location but it was very dark. So dark it was difficult to read the menu. Our server was good as far as taking orders and getting them correct, however he lacked in the area of refills (probably because we were drinking water). The restaurant was almost empty so that was a little bit ridiculous. Other than those two things a great place. I will definitely return!

..not that great. Could not find a quickly good restaurant in town being a visitor on the first day .. so ended up here .. it was ok but in retrospect it was pretty bland .. it felt like a microwaved prepared item .. it filled me but not to write home about .. so just write here then I guess ... next day I found Taco Pica which proved to be amazing and really showed me the contrast ..

For a date-night out, awesome, fun little restaurant. Amazing food (chicken nachos are the bomb!). We make a date to go monthly.
