The chips are nicely thin and crispy. The queso is very good. Had chicken Monterey and it was ok. The rice and beans were good but the red sauce was ok. Service is great and makes up the the ok food. I will go back

First time here. Definitely a must go! Top notch service, chips salsa hot cheese and warm tortillas and that's before you get your order! So good. Then complimentary dessert! Unreal wish I had one near me in WI.

The food is fresh and homemade. The drinks are amazing. I ordered food to go and it is always great. They make sure you have everything you need. The pruces are very reasonable.

Service is pretty good. Nice and friendly staff. Food could have been a bit fresher, easy to tell our plates were left under a warmer of some sort. Restaurant is always clean and upbeat.
