Have eaten there several times (5+). Good is always good. Service is good during normal meal times. Last visit was during mid-Afternoon After initial order taking I had to chase down waitress for refills or extras. That said, the good is worth the inconvenience.More

This place makes their own tortillas and I got beef fajitas. They were amazing! My daughter got a quesadilla with scallops and shrimp and she said it was fantastic!!! Highly recommend!!!

We were a party of four and stopped for a light dinner. We all ordered something different and shared appetizers, quesadillas, tacos and burritos. Service was excellent. The menu was varied and prices very reasonable.
