“Fun place”
Reviewed March 13, 2007

Four of us went here for dinner recently and we enjoyed our food. We were members of the "clean plate club" that night. The service was great and the staff was friendly. The drinks were not short-shotted. It was a Saturday night, so after dinner we went into the bar to listen to the band. They were awesome! We had plans to move on to another bar but the atmosphere was so good we just stayed put until closing time.

“Overpriced. Better ambience and service than food.”
Reviewed December 24, 2006

We go there now and then with others who choose it. We do not choose it ourselves. The service is always good, and it has a nice ambience, if a little crowded. Probably their best offering is the salsa. It is one of the best around. They always do the chips right, too. Last time there, my chicken was burned black on the bottom, so the burnt taste ruined whatever flavor there was. I would have sent it back, but I didn't want to offend our friends who like the place. The black bean soup was not even as good as some canned soups. I sent it back without comment, and none of the staff seemed to notice. My wife's chimichanga was not very flavorful. Just had a generic fried Mexican taste. Parking is poor. Service is good.

Great restaurant! I've been there many times with my son's family. Food and service is excellent and friendly. Kids are treated well.
