The food was out of this world! Authentic Mexican. The atmosphere was very nice, family friendly. The service was the only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5. Very friendly but very slow.

The food was actually quite good, had a sampler platter with steak, chicken, and bacon wrapped shrimp - very good. Beer was limited, bottles only, and expensive. Service was really slow and they were not full.
