We got to the restaurant about 8. It was 9:45 before we got our food (except chips) and when we got it, it was luke warm which it should have been hot. We had two rounds of chips befoe they even took our drink order.

Out of town visitors who picked this place at random. Good prices, 2 for 1 drink specials all day, good food, too. The place was noisy from one group that was celebrating but our oversized margaritas helped to blunt that.

Walking distance from Marriott Courtyard. Delicious chicken and beef fajitas and California burrito. They serve decent 2 for 1 margaritas. We had the sweetest waiter. He was attentive and we enjoyed our conversations with him. Time we'll spent.

The worst service ever. They refuse to take owner ship of the service. Would not apologize for the fly in drink. Everything was not their problem. The food was not good at all. You may want to try your luck somewhere else.
