Relax in an open air setting and enjoy the view while you eat. Definitely a good choice if you don't want to spend a lot to eat home style food.

Ok for lunch. Ok tacos and chicken wings. Not impressed with the nachos. Cheese spread for cheese. Service was great.

Having the chicken stuffed jalapeños for an appetizer is a MUST. They are amazing. In fact, we have had them the past two Sundays. I was tempted to make that my main course, but thought that might be a bit too many peppers for one...More
