My wife and I had dinner here recently using a promotional offer. The restaurant is pleasantly decorated and has a nice atmosphere. It also has a nice cantina and apparently a mariachi band on some evenings. However, the food was not good. My wife had...More

This restaurant was recommended to us by neighbors. From the outside it doesn't look special, but the atmosphere inside is welcoming. The service is friendly, the decor charming, and the food excellent. We've eaten here for lunch a couple of times and have added it...More
