The food is delicious and happy hour is perfect. They have a separate area in the front that has a beaded curtain to sort of separate it from the dining area. The chips and salsa are delicious along with the tortillas.

Visited Lisa’s after an athletic event that was held in the area. When our group asked the locals where to eat Lisa’s was the resounding choice! It did not disappoint! We arrived to a packed house (Friday night) but the wait wasn’t long at all....More

Met with old school friends. The restaurant was very nice and busy. A table for 17 had been reserved. The service was prompt and the menu had a large selection of Mexican food plus limited non Mexican foods.
