I can't believe that I have passed by this place for years and not ventured in. Really loved the salsa and had some great salmon. Will be back to try more entrees.

Dinner was awesome. Shrimp Tacos, Carnitas and Enchiladas. We shared entrees to sample. This was very good from the chips to the white chocolate/pecan tamale. Excellent meal. Waiter was great! PS. The location is a 100 year old Quarry building.
