The meal was very good and the portion size was quite large. The margaritas were excellent. Very reasonable prices. Worth a visit!

We eat at Pollis regularly, being local residents. Their margaritas are great, and the homemade salsa is fabulous! The food is tasty and in generous portions. It can get crowded, especially on weekends, but the wait time isn't too bad.
