“Inconsistent”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

We've been to this restaurant several times (once every 4-6 months) and it seems to be a different place every time. I don't mean the appearance or the service, I mean the food.
The most recent visit was very good. The food was cooked just the way it should be and the waitress was very attentive and kept our glasses full.
I suspect the inconsistency has to do with the likelihood that they hire kids from the local colleges and probably have a high turnover. I can't recall seeing the same personnel from one visit to the next.

“Family restaurant”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

This is where you go if the whole family is together and you can't get a table at Hollister Brewing Company. Nothing special on the menu.

Not the best quality food, but has some good options. I'm a sucker for their presidente margaritas and the chocolate chip paradise pie for desert :) YUM!
