We stopped in for dinner as a family on spring break and our server, Baldomero took very good care of us. All the staff was friendly, helpful and eager to please. The food was delicious and good prices too. The atmosphere was upbeat and positive. A great experience - thank you all!

“Excelent place!”

Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone the service, food, and personal are great. The hostess (Faby) is always on top of things and with a big smile. I can honestly see myself dinning at the restaurant frequently.

“Excellent food for an excellent price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

For a restaurant located in a Hilton this was a pleasant surprise. All of our meals were under $8 each. My wife had the blackened fish and said it was outstanding. My son had the country fried chicken and said it was great, but the portion could have been larger. I had the half pound cheeseburger and it was one of the freshest I have ever had. You could tell it had been hand formed and that can only happen with fresh meat. The desserts were awesome as well. We had the 3 layer chocolate cake and the New York cheese cake. Superb!! The only drawback was the live entertainment that started at 6. It is an elderly gentleman who thought he could sing by the name of Jack Mabbott that with his wife call themselves "Mixed Bag". Do not go to this restaurant on Friday or Saturday between the hours of 6 to 9. As soon as Jack had sung a couple of tunes my ears started to bleed. I have never heard such catterwalling in my life called singing. But the food is great here. Kudos to the chefs but fire whomever hired Jack.
