The burgers here were amazing! We loved the drink specials from 5-7 PM and had monster margaritas and the daiquiris. So good we went three times throughout the week

Very good food, big portion with a lot of vegetables. This was best meal I had in Samara. I ate fajitas and they are really good, as advertised.

Wonderful fajitas, but watch out for the up charge for extra beans. Friendly, shade and breezes. Love the resident cat.
