We were there about 8 pm on a Sunday. There was still a long wait but we were able to find a table in the bar area, which is almost as big as the restaurant. We ordered some build-your-own nachos and some "get your own"...More

Great burritos. We had great service also. We got there on a Saturday around 4:15 pm, we had to wait about 25 minutes. The bar has a great selection of beer and extensive drink menu. Would go again.
