we both ordered fajitas and were disappointed. The onions were practically raw and not grilled. There was one slice of green pepper and one slice of red pepper and again not grilled. You also received two large wedges of tomato. Not very helpful when eating...More

Awesome in the summer. Can sit outside on couches and have a quality drink. Foods great I'm a big fan of the enchilada! Great staff. Huge place. Glad it's not the over priced Naked Fish of the past. Highly reccomend a visit. Enjoy

This manager was extremely rude. Even raised her voice to me with a full packed restaurant. Very inappropriate. Once I provided a Groupon , in which I paid for online she had a very bad attitude towards me. I was never offered chips and salsa...More
