We came here after a basketball game at the Spectrum Center, short walk for a quick bite. The nachos were delicious, a little spicy, and the food came out super fast! This was a great place to eat!

Had great fresh guacamole that was really good. Pico was great and meat nachos were good. Husband had the blood orange margarita and ordered another. They were sour enough. I’d come back

Had lunch here on a Saturday lunchtime. Place was almost empty as it was 14:30. Prompt and friendly service and food was good. Decor was tired and overall impression was a fast food outlet trying to be something else.
