Great food and very friendly service. The salsa is awesome nice and spicy and flavorful. We went there twice in as many days. No idea about the American food but the Mexican is awesome.

The waitress was grumpy. The hamburger meat didn't taste fresh. The rest of the food was adequate, but I can't call it good. I would avoid this restaurant, there are better places to eat. Food 1 star Decor 2 stars
