I love the chips and salsa, and the queso dip is good too. A unique blend of steakhouse and Mexican style foods give lots of options to choose from.

My wife and I are both alergic to MSG and were told by the staff that almost everything they serve contained MSG

Last reviewed this place in 2013, and quite frankly, it has gone down hill. The have tried some new menu items to be more current, and some works. Dinner here was fine: food was excellent portions and spicy like expected. Service was adequate - they got the right food to the table, but not really sharp on service. The BIG... More

Food's okay. Service okay. The big downfall of this place is that they allow customers to smoke in there. I didn't think anybody did that any more.

We enjoyed a nice meal with a very good waitress.The Double-Grilled Chicken Burrito was very good and was big enough for both of us. I tried their fried wings and found them a little small but very tasty.The place was very busy but everyone was being taken care of nicely.

Food was served promptly with manager's help. Had to hunt down server for drink refill. A little crowded a family with small kids making noise made it hard to carry on a normal conversation.

I had the lighter fare--the fish, rice and vegetables and would rate it a perfect 5! It was 100% yummy. However the service was awful. We were seated and it took 20 minutes before our drink order was taken or we were brought water. There were only about four tables full when we were there so it wasn't because it... More

Not my idea of food. I have been here several times, because of margaritas being on sale. The salsa, taste like chili tomatoes, and the queso, taste really commercial. Service is not always the best!! New management would do this restaurant a world of wonders. Redo the menu, or train employees better on how to cool the food. Better quality... More
