The staff was very courteous and accurately explained the selections. The food was good and the prices were reasonable. The atmosphere was pleasant. My friend and I had a very good meal. I think it is good for family dining.

I can't believe that I have passed by this place for years and not ventured in. Really loved the salsa and had some great salmon. Will be back to try more entrees.

Dinner was awesome. Shrimp Tacos, Carnitas and Enchiladas. We shared entrees to sample. This was very good from the chips to the white chocolate/pecan tamale. Excellent meal. Waiter was great! PS. The location is a 100 year old Quarry building.

Great margarita but very disappointed in chicken fried steak. Gravy was not real thick and steak could have been pounded out better. Wouldn't have it again.
