I was traveling with my boss and the owner of our company who had been there before. The food was great! I had the fajitas, they came out sizzling hot and there was so much food I had enough to take with me to eat for dinner!! The staff was friendly and very helpful. I highly recommend this place!

Will never go again worst service and food ever. Food was nasty and so was the service and they still charged gratuity for our party. Never again won't even go to the one in bakersfield.

The wife and I started eating here when the extended part of the restaurant was still owened by my friend Dave. Even back then their food and your friends could come together in a most inviting and relaxing place. Everything I've tried I've liked! You gotta give them a try! Enjoy!

I was very disappointed by the lack of specialties on this menu, the general plain-ness of the food and the incredible lack of Carnitas on the menu in any form.
