Very tasty Mexican food, not the least expensive but very good value for the quality. Adult beverages are also surprisingly inexpensive, and both the sangria and margaritas were well made.

Great food and service. Great price - they let you order off the lunch menu at night for just .99 more. Great for travelers who have no way to take left-overs home.
