We enjoy the variety on their buffet and it is easy to eat gluten-free. Service is good as they'll bring items out to you if you're waiting on something to be refilled on the buffet. Salsa and chips are good too.

This is our go to for Mexican supper. The staff is always friendly and fun. The food is always good and more than enough! They do a buffet on Sunday that is well worth a stop!

Average food. Ground beef is a little bland. Steak is chopped up a little small but tastes good. Overall ok value for money spent.
