Great quick and friendly service, great food . Staff is always checking in on you to make sure your everything is okay, refills on drinks, etc. Plus they offer a 10% military discount. Go there frequently and plan to continue. Awesome place.

We weren't here for supper on a Sunday night, my granddaughter had vegetarian fajita, my wife had the burrito Mezcal, and I had a chimichanga. All were good with fast service and a friendly waiter.
