We were staying next door at Hampton Inn and just walked over. They sat us quickly, brought salsa and chips right away. We enjoyed our lunch specials, the service, and the ambiance.

The main reason I didn't rate this Very Good was because the top shelf margarita with 3 liquors I ordered was weak and disappointingly small for the $10.49 price, compared to other restaurants. The carne asada was very tender, juicy and flavorful. The side of veggies had a very spicy seasoning on it that made me cough, and I like spicy so it was too much. The service was friendly and efficient.

First time here today.

Once seated, we were offered generous portions of chips and some really delicious, hot salsa!

This is more of a South Western type cuisine than Tex-Mex.
Loved the chicken mango salad that I had. Very healthy. It came with black beans, corn, some cheese, delicious grilled chicken, mango, greens. Great size too.

Others in the group enjoyed their entrees.

My sister had a chicken fajita salad. Again, all very fresh and healthy ingredients. Generous portion of chicken too.

My husband had enchiladas (chicken), which came with an option of beans & rice or grilled vegetables. He ate it all and gave it a thumbs up!

Another in our party had a chicken burrito bowl. While he enjoyed it, he though the portion was a bit small, but it was delicious.

We all liked the fact that there seem to be healthy options here.

Our server, Nick, was attentive and helpful.

Would most definitely return.
