Great food and drink with friends. Our waiter was attentive and fun. The chips and dips (red and green sauces) were really good. Everyone got a different dish to eat, and they were all extremely pleased. Can't really ask for more!

Terrific margaritas, shri,p tacos and pork nachos. Everyone loves this place for good reason, everything tastes great! Fast and friendly service as well. The watermelon margaritas are perfect for a hot summer day.

They serve you 2 styles of salsa with chips to start your meal with. I most often get a mixed meat order of fajitas which is always good. Their carne asada is always very good. Try their grilled chicken dishes.
