Went here with a group. Everyone was highly pleased with service and food. Even though they were very busy, the attention to detail did not suffer. Wait staff were excellent and service was fast. Be sure to put this restaurant on your list. You won't be disappointed!

“Good food, even better prices!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

Stopped here with my girlfriend. We shared an order of fajitas....it was enought to fill both of us up and was very delicious. Service was good. We sat outside, i went in once to use the restroom and it was very small, if this place was busy im sure it would not be fun going in the restroom or waiting on someone to come out. Overall it was a good time.
