“Much Improved”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2011

In the last year, the waitstaff has changed and the service is MUCH better. The food continues to be really affordable and plentiful, and is now complimented by good service.

“If you can tolerate the service, the food is worth it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2010

My family and I have eaten here off and on for several years. We have a waitress whom we try to get whenever we visit, but it is not always possible. Whenever we get anyone else, we KNOW the service is going to be awful. Dont expect your drinks to be refilled, your chips will not be refilled either. If your waitress looks like a meth addict, you will know the service is going to be bad. However, once you eventually get your food, you will see it was all worth it.

The 99 cent tacos monday-friday are a great deal! They come with meat, cheese, lettuce and tomato and are filled to the top. The childrens menu is VERY affordable, with most meals being between $1-$2. The nachos are excellent, as are the fajitas. The salsa is kind of different, being very liquid without any chunks. Depending on your waitress, it may be warm to room temp, but it is very good and usually mildly spicy.
