Overall good experience. Nice atmosphere and wait staff with prompt service. The food was good, nothing extraordinary. They do make each tortilla fresh and the chips and salsa were very good. The margaritas are huge and are priced very well.

The food was just ok. This used to be one of the best Tex-Mex restaurants in the Texas Panhandle but I believe they have sold out and the restaurant is not as good as it used to be. Quite often it is dirty and the...More
