Very average food and service experience for a "legendary" Tex Mex place. We went for lunch and were not impressed.

The food was great and so was the drinks. The only thing I didn't like was the white cheese sauce for the chips, their's isn't white it's yellow with a little bite. But not enough to bother with.
