Nice atmosphere with Mexican feel. Quick service by friendly waitress and food arriving quickly with good presentation. Grouper Quesadillas and beef fajitas were well prepared and delicious.

Chips and salsa were a great start with great flavor. I had a fresh squeezed margarita that was top notched! Service was very attentive. Main course was average.
