We went there on a saturday night for dinner. They did have some mexican fare, steak fajitas. While the food was tasty, it was quite expensive for what we were served. The service was excellent, though.

Love this place! Great food, great service, great atmosphere though it can get pretty loud when real busy. Awesome desserts! If you are looking for dinner on the weekend, head here first. Suggest you call ahead for reservations just to be sure.
