We found our food to be delicious and a huge menu with so many choices. The complimentary salsas were excellent and an endless supply of tortilla chips.

Had a later than normal lunch. Not crowded, but almost 4:00. Were pleased that lunch could be ordered from the lunch menu until 4:00. Service was good, food consistent.

We will be visiting Waco on a Friday during Lent and will be looking for a place with fish or shrimp tacos or other seafood options for lunch. Are those available here?
