We had lunch on a Wednesday . The taco salad was great and I eat lots of taco salads. They need to do something about the restrooms. Only one of each is just not enough for s restaurant that seats this many people.

Best shredded chicken as well as spinach quesadillas. Reasonably priced menu options. Sour cream dip excellent. Not crazy about chips. Fast, courteous service.
