Dinner was great. Good food and service. Only downfall is no hard liquor so margaritas are made with wine. Still good but not the same.

This Mexican restaurant always has good food & service. We stopped in for lunch & sat upstairs on the outdoor patio. It’s a great place to people-watch & eat some good Mexican cuisine. Good lunch menu & good prices.

I went on my own to this restaurant, and was surprised how I was ignored. The service dropped me off and disappeared for 15 minutes..I was just getting ready to get up and leave. The food was average, chips were bland. I wouldn't go back.More

Ample adult beverages. Popular with locals. Plenty of seating, very little wait time. I had soft chicken tacos. Delicious!

We enjoyed the food at this convenient restaurant. It is larger than it looks from the outside and is tastefully decorated. Not extraordinary but good solid food preparation. Nice sized portions. A welcome change of pace from all the good seafood restaurants in the area.More
