Stopped in for lunch. The restaurant is very clean and tastefully decorated. Service was very good. Salad was very good. Grilled chicken was good but a little bland. Refried beans were very good. Rice is average. I would go back again.

I'm not to really a fan of Mexican food, but my friends are so I ended up going there with them. I ended up enjoying my meal as far as Mexican food, and their drinks were great--especially the margaritas.

The food NEVER disappoints, and Scott was a great server. A perennial fave when we are in North Dakota.

If you are looking for service, keep looking! You will not find it here. We were at a table for a good 10 minutes before my friend had to ask if there was servers or if we needed to order at the bar? Austin was our server and he leaves much to be desired... you will have to ask for... More
