This restaurant has the best jalapeno popper by far. Large peppers, fully stuffed with a very thin batter that does not hide the pepper. chesses enchiladas were good. other items were average. This chain started in Dallas but has lost its Tex-Mex roots.

Food and drinks are mediocre but service is fast. This place is never busy so you could hang out for a while and it's not loud so you can have a good conversation.
