Really enjoyed eating on the covered patio. The chips were good and so was the salsa if you like it with a little heat (they said they did not have a milder version when my wife asked). Chicken enchiladas were excellent. And service was good.

We had lunch there today and the food was pretty good but the service was very slow. I was hoping the food would be great, since it took a bit longer to get - but it was just ok. I saw some table-side guacamole being...More
