I've been here a few times and had a different dish each time. Everything I've had was delicious, the staff was very attentive. I would highly recommend it. There's not really a better alternative anywhere nearby.

This is one of the few restaurants that we have gone to and have yet to have a bad meal or bad service. Our golf group occasionally goes here after golf and they are always will to accommodate 8 to 10 people.

I have tried this place over and over again to try and see if they have improved their food, but to no avail. It is average at best. I wish that another place with great food would move into the area such as El Toreo....More
