We went for dinner and it was pretty good. Place is huge and nice inside. Had shrimp appetizer with the chips and salsa on the table were all good. The fajitas are the only reason i chose 4 stars. There wasn't much flavor. The steak though, wow..that was amazing. Kids meal was a good portion. We asked for birthday humiliation... More

Nice place, the food was very good, nice selection to choose from, and the service was very good. We had the Enchilada del Mar, and the Beef Short Rib Enchilada, both were delicious.

The food was flavorful and the portions were a good size. The chips and salsa was a nice start to the meal. The finish was the special tres leches cake.

For a Friday night, the parking lot was quite full. We were seated upstairs which was less noisy than downstairs. We had drinks which came right away. I ordered the guacamole which was very good. I had a veggie burrito which was ALOT of food! I saved half for the next day. It was very tasty. My friend had the... More

Mexican flavor. Plenty of parking space. Good food. Getting the 2 combo special is your best buy. You get to choose the meal you want say a Chimichanga , and for an extra dollar you can choose another entrée such as a Burrito or Enchilada or Empanada. Great for lunch or dinner.

The food is OK not great. It has a nice facility with a place outside to eat. During the summer they have special drink nights which draws big crowds.

My wife and I had dinner here on a Sunday evening. My chicken burrito was ok...about the best I can say for it. The rice and beans were averag.. nothing special.

We chose to eat near the bar, so we could watch Sunday football. The bartender doubled as our server and she did a great job: she was friendly, efficient, and took care of drink refills right away. She started us off with complimentary chips and two kinds of salsa (red and green). We both had the seafood enchiladas and substituted... More
