Nice place. I wouldn't say it's anything fancy. They've got the usual menu and drinks. I got the fish tacos and they were okay. I've had better, but it cured my fish-taco-craving.

Dropped in for a quick brunch and truly enjoyed the Cuervo Gold Margarita as did my wife with the more unusual prickly pear margarita. The fried avocado was good but the lime/cilantro sauce was too overwhelming. Both the entree’s were excellent .

Used to love this place years ago. Thought we would try it again. Food was bland. Guacamole was very salty. Waitperson was attentive and polite. Thanks, but I'm sure there's better Mexican food somewhere else.
