Went here for a quick bite--was offered a 20% discount for food at the bar top. Had the Shrimp Diablo app. Large shrimp! Very tasty. Bartenders were great. The place filled up with large parties after 6pm very quickly.

Good first visit... We had the enchiladas Texana and the pork carnitas tacos. We thought everything was very tasty. The manager Charlie was all about the customer experience. Plus they are open until 2am.
