The food was decent, though they put a hot, red sauce on items without listing it on the menu. Our major complaint was the bar area being open to the restaurant. When I'm dining with my family, I'd rather not hear drunks at a bar...More

I've been going here for 20 years. They did over expand a few years ago and quality suffered but they are back to the original yummyness. Poco loco is my new favorite but tacos and enchaladas are really good too.
