Don't know if it was an "off" night or what, but we didn't even eat much of it. We had a coupon, buy one meal, get the other half off, but we can home hungry and were not pleased. Will not go back.

Well El Gitano to the rescue, I had a great dinner in my mind but reality vs what I made for Mothers day didn't match up. My wife said go get her some Carne Asada and she wouldn't complain too much.

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.
