Was disappointed in the cheese enchiladas platter. A little pricey for the quantity of food and atmosphere. Would not go back.

Great Mexican food and Seafood with respectable prices and good service. We enjoyed getting right in and guests filled each table. The appetizers were excellent also. We had fried shrimp and taco plates. Very filling. We will be back again and again!
