Parking lot was loaded, so we expected a long wait when we got in. Didn't happen. We were seated promptly and served quickly. My chilies relenos were superb. Prices were reasonable and we left a generous tip. I'd go back there often.

From the patio, you have a view of the river below. The food is good and varied from most Tex-Mex restaurants. Service was good. They don't take reservations, and if going at a busy time, expect a wait to get a table.
