My husband and I shared the special fajitas for two. They included: steak, chicken, shrimp, mushrooms, peppers, onions and carrots. They were very tasty and there was plenty to share. They were served with the usual rice and beans.

Came to eat with our son, waited to be seated for several minutes. The waitress was really nice but the food wasn't great & they made our nachos wrong.

Took our family of 4 (two kids ages 10 and 4) for dinner. The margaritas were tasty (on ice with salt) and the chips and salsa were fresh. The meals were great and the ambiance was casual enough were my kids volumes were drowned out.
