Went now several times for Dinner because I’m staying conveniently at the Hotel Next Door. I can’t praise this Place enough, so far everything I had on the Menu was delicious. Very friendly and accommodating Staff. Highly recommended if you in the area.

We arrived at 6 on a Friday and it was crazy busy so we left and came back at 8 and had a good meal. Chorizo grilled chicken and steak burrito we had were very good. Service was so-so. Overall we recommend.More

Thanks for the review, John. Our apologies that we were initially pretty busy, but we are thrilled that you stopped back in. We will certainly pass the word along in regards to the service. "So-So" is certainly not the type of service that we strive...More

We stopped here for a quick bite in the middle of the afternoon. The restaurant was clean and the staff friendly. We had chips and salsa delivered to the table as soon as we sat down. Our food was good and the prices mid range.

The food was greasy, the management was horrible. I would not eat there again or recommend. Try the Mexican restaurant right down the street. Mi Margaritas its much better.
