Delicious guacamole and chips, three salsas (tomatillo, chunky red and smooth pureed red salsa) that each have a wonderful flavor. Had a holiday lunch with 10 co-workers and the average tab, after guac & chips, signature fresh fruit juice drinks, and entrees, and a few...More

Took business associates and a friend out for dinner--a group with a diverse palate, let's just say. Everybody loved it, and even with a short menu found something to try. We were lucky enough to be there when a guitarist was in the dining room,...More
