Picked this place based on good reviews and wasnt disappointed. Has a nice, warm, eclectic atmosphere and great food. Enjoyed the queso and scallops. Servings were large and Trent provided great service. Highly recommend!!

Chips and salsa were a great start with great flavor. I had a fresh squeezed margarita that was top notched! Service was very attentive. Main course was average.

Chimichangas and chicken tacos were delicious. The meal came quickly, but service was slow and not attentive.....on a slow Sunday night. Close to our condo at Shoreline Towers.
