This restaurant has a really friendly atmosphere. Food was of excellent quality and reasonably priced. We had Fajita's, Salmon and Baby Back Ribs followed by 1 dessert of Churrito's. All were excellent. With 2 pints bill came to $92.

I ordered the fish tacos which were not bad but there was almost no fish; all lettuce. The service was OK but I would not eat there again.

Stopped in for a late lunch. Outside seating is shady and pleasant with misters and thatched umbrellas. Staff efficient and friendly. But I was most impressed with the freshness of the ingredients in the dishes we ordered. The ceviche was excellent and the mild tomatillo...More

The guitar player is there every night from 6:00 P.M. until 9:00 P.M. He's very good & we enjoy the music. Not too loud. Also, I am sure the restaurant would accommodate your vegan tastes if you let them know.
