This place is known for their TexMex. It does remind us of Texas. Food is good. Get a margarita. They serve you chips and salsa. I was lucky to get warm chips! Buy their queso. You can't go wrong with the menu but try the fajitas. Seafood enchiladas. Steak & blue cheese salad. Enjoy!

We went here with some family members that live near by. It's a great place. I had chimichurri steak. Rice and beans were good. Chimichurri sauce was okay. It could have had more cilantro, for my liking. I had the sangria, also good. Others in my group ordered fajitas. Everyone enjoyed their selections.

We stopped here on a whim. For a family of two adults, one teen, and two younger kids, you can eat quite plentifully. We ordered the fajitas for two, which when paired with an appetizer of queso and chips, was more than enough for our family of five.

The fajitas for two (we got chicken and steak mixed) came with plenty of charred onions, which were delicious, but no peppers. There were two small bowls of black beans and two small bowls of rice, which was excellent. There was also a plate with pico de gallo, cheese, lettuce, and sour cream. We asked for guacamole for .95 extra. There were 8-10 flour tortillas. We were served with complimentary chips and salsa, which were great. We also, as I mentioned, ordered chips and queso to share. This, along with two adult size sodas and two kid lemonades, came to $41.00, not including tax or tip.

Service was excellent. We got a spot right away on a Saturday afternoon. It was busy and full of people, but service was still on-point.

I get why this place is always packed - it's a huge restaurant, cheap, and the portions are massive. Our food came so quickly after we ordered you know it's not good. But the taste and quality were bad, bad, bad.
