They have completely redecorated. Their service is great and the food is excellent. We eat there every Monday. Their fajatias are special. The margaritas are good also.

Pretty good food, and the service is always good. Love the big margaritas and the chips and salsa. Kids love to go here, and the prices are reasonable.

So cool to select your own meat, pasta and veggies; then mix up your own sauce and spice combination. You end up with a different concoction every time, have never been disappointed.
