The salsa was awesome just the right amount of zip if you like it a little spicy! Service was great and the food was wonderful! We had the Texas fajitas for 2 and we were not disappointed! Nice variety of items on the menu.

Took my daughters here for dinner. They raved about the queso, which is very good. Guac is ok and salsa is good. Enjoyed the tacos and burritos. Prices are good. Service is good.
