Worst restaurant experience EVER! Had to wait to be seated, nobody at the entrance. Had to have our table wiped down, was wet AND dirty. Chips were old. The famous homemade tortillas were awful (mushy and cold). Sent my food back three times because it...More

Went for a home delivery and was surprised by the quantity. The food was good, price was decent. Ice cream quantity could have been better. Overall worth it.

First time visit was a success and we will definitely go back. Our food was really good across the board, and the 3 of us each ordered something different. To minor things that prevented me from giving 5 stars: the meat for the fajitas when...More
