This restaurant was near our hotel. The chips and salsa were fabulous! The tacos were delish. Wish they were on the ocean side of Florida.

I stopped in for lunch on a business trip. Since my work was done, I had a margarita. It was good, and the food was very good. The place doesn't look like much, but the food was very good. It was not expensive.

Randomly walked in here while strolling the area. I was impressed. It was delicious. I loved the chips and salsa. They make a very spicy margarita. It was fast, delicious and affordable.

Great place with oh-so-many options. Had a hard time choosing my meal. Family friendly, but also a good place to grab a brew after work. Staff was helpful and hustled for everything.
