Accompanied by client, who ordered the taco salad with fajita beef; found it to be excellent and was particularly pleased that the salad greens were cut small enough not to hang off the fork or require a knife; free pralines arrived with the bill.

This restaurant is known for its amazing queso, but many of it's other items are great too. I recommend the carnitas or the fajitas.
