My husband and I enjoyed eating here. It is a family-type restaurant. The salmon tacos were delicious. For only $0.95 I substituted a salad instead of the refried beans. my husband had the shrimp pasta dish and enjoyed it. He really liked the bread.

We ordered a Cesar salad and baby backs, it took quite awhile to get the ribs so next time we'll order them for the same time. The ribs are fall-off-the-bone. 4 star is the slow service. We are going to try the happy hour menu...More
