Great place for a night out. The fajitas were great, but hands down my favorite part is the margaritas. Love the open space and easy going staff. I visit every time I’m in town.

We were staying next door at Hampton Inn and just walked over. They sat us quickly, brought salsa and chips right away. We enjoyed our lunch specials, the service, and the ambiance.
