From 3-7pm the margaritas are $4 and the bar/patio can get full which means noisy. You can order from the menu if you want a full meal but the snacks are plenty.

The food is very good. Maybe because it was taco Tuesday it was a little too noisy. The fajita combo of steak and shrimp was very tasty and filling. Service was friendly and helpful. Wasn't real busy. The music and bar noise made it too...More
