The food in the pictures looked really good. In actuality, the food was the worst. They served me a slice of rotten tomato as a garnish. The fajitas were the worst, pan fried meat, not grilled. Drowned in mushy vegetables.

The quality of the decor can impact one's enjoyment of the food, for sure. Some more updating would make this place match the great quality of the food. I recommend the Burrito California or the Chicken Enchilada Suizas.

They have a great quesadilla. They have good service and plentiful chips and salsa. The atmosphere is clean and inviting with a lurid paint scheme.

We were there over an hour - we had to get up and get our own refill on chips because the waitress was so overwhelmed. I think it was her first day. Our food never came out. When I went to talk to the manager...More

OK - certainly nothing bad, but nothing to rave about either. Clean and inviting. Chips were thick, which I didn't care as much for as the thin crispy style. Salsa and other food was good. The margarita was just OK. Good waitress and service. Friendly...More
