Enjoyed our visit. I am a light weight drinker and the frozen margarita was strong and tasty. All of the drinks were strong. The food was different than anything we can get at home and was delish.

You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu here. Everything from apps to main courses (we have actually never made it to the desserts) is delicious. They are huge portions and easily split between two people (especially if you partake in an appetizer or...More
