My husband and I brought our two sons here after spending 3 hours on a ropes course. We were starving! All four of us really enjoyed our food for less than $30. We would go back again!

Quick and friendly service. I had the chicken quesadillas that were average taste but large portions. Good lunch spot when craving Mexican food for affordable price.
