I had blackened chicken and the flavors were outstanding. My date had zuchini tacos. Neither of us were disappointed. We knew it had a great reputation, but our expectations were exceeded. They really hit it out of the park on this trip.

Food was very enjoyable, but be prepared to wait, took quite a bit of time for them to make a pasta dish and tacos, we could see the cooks goofing off instead of cooking...little disappointing after seeing all the good reviews

We have been here several times and the food and service always brings us back. This time we got to use our Birthday Gift Certificates. The food was great again as usual as was the service. Love eating here. Can't wait to go back.

Located in a small shopping center, this place doesn't look like much from the outside. Don't let it fool you. The service was great and the food was fantastic. I had the fajita tacos and my wife had the chicken Alfredo. Both were great. I'd...More
