Don't think that the new management can't do Mexican just because they come from Germany! The new menu and the food are fantastic! You can tell that Mane Rothenhagen is a trained chef by watching him work in the kitchen and he knows great food...More

The fajitas were very good, lots of everything, the chicken was nicely spiced. Cold drinks, reasonable service. Music can get very loud, especially if they have a DJ.

There was overly loud music playing the whole time. The fajitas were good but there was not enough lettuce,tomatoes and salsa to go with the chicken and peppers.
