This is a great place for good food and the kids will be entertained while sitting still for the entire dinner. It is also a great place for a date, so whether a girlfriend, or the wife and kids, it is a winner.

My chili’s burger was better and way cheaper. But the ambiance was great and I enjoyed the ride. Their souvenirs were good and cool. Enjoyed the service except for the foreign language between the servers
