My granddaughter and I dropped on for lunch on our way Spring Break shopping. We were seated and within a few minutes our waiter came and ask for our drink order and brought us chips and dip. When he returned with our drinks, the took our orders. Our food arrive with 10 minutes of ordering- hot and delicious.

A tad pricey for lunch, but we had tons of leftovers so it was worth it. Food was great! Great queso and salsa! Fajitas were on pointe as well!
