The food was very fresh and tasty. The staff especially the manager Steve were super friendly. On our first visit Steve noticed I was interested in watching the US Open that each time we came back he turned tennis on the TV nearest us.

I have eaten here several times. Best burgers ever. The food is great here and the portions are huge. And did I tell you about the jalapeno margaritas.

Had the taco salad, quesadillas, and chimichangas. All great. Reminded me of the Tex-Mex back home in Tejas! Bartender was very friendly and generous with the drinks. Great experience all around
