First, don’t be afraid of the prices you see. It’s worth what you pay. $30 for a fajita plate that had shrimp and ribs among an assortment of food items. The portions were massive and tasted incredible. It was absolutely amazing.

The food here is good, yes, but for the price, and the quality, there are many more restaurants that are better. The service is average. Overall, for the price and the quality, it would be a place I would only revisit for business. Plus it...More

Beef enchiladas were great along with the rice and received beans that came with it. Usually larger portions than you can eat when you come here. The chips are good but the salsa is cooked and appears to be brown and tasteless and you can’t...More
