Pretty good Telmex food. Fast service. Very courteous. Outdoor live music most nights. Fun atmosphere. Do go.

Have been coming here for lunch for years and just started checking out the weekend entertainment. Loads of fun dancing to really good talent and great breakfast the morning after. We always look forward to seeing the friendly people at Deans.

Nice atmosphere inside and out. The daily specials are usually very good. The wings are big and tasty, all three types and flavors. The bar outside gets packed early during the season and on weekends. Lots of variety and fairly priced.

The burritos here are huge and delicious. Do yourself a favor and get the decadent cheese fries as an app. Only $4? For the portion size it is a wonderful deal. Service was a bit spotty as the servers seemed like whirling dervishes.They are busy girls and it's not exactly fine dining by any means! It is an open air Sysco-driven meeting place so what do you expect? it is a great value for the money. Have a margarita, do some people watching and enjoy some delicious Tex-Mex food. Come hungry and leave full.

Been several times over the years. Always get the Mexican dishes and haven't had a bad one yet. This is always a first choice for when family comes to town.
