Hubby and I went here for lunch after seeing the $1.99 margaritas and $4.75 specials they were offering. We were pleasantly surprised. The food and service was excellent. The waitress made sure we were well taken care of and our food was excellent. We will...More

Love going to San Jose to dinner or lunch. Start out with good chips and salsa and sodas or adult beverages. Then order from the menu and they bring out while it is hot. Delicious!

As often happens when a local restaurant expands, too many changes occur and, sadly, the food is frequently the thing that goes south. That was the case today at lunch. Salsa had an odd taste, no 'white sauce'--the white creamy dip with jalapeno juice, runny...More
