Atmosphere and service were great. Food was a hit with our larger party. Guac n chips, chili navos awrsome. Chicken fajitas, seafood jumbalaya, tacos, smoked chicken & brisket all great. Desserts we tried, churos were good, but the fried ice cream was phenomenal.. Would recommend

We ate in in april and the service and food were both very good. The atmosphere in this new restaurant is great with a nice looking bar area and restaurants. The menu offers fine choices and it's worth a visit.
