Great service at the tempe location. Our server was Brooke and she took care of our party of 7 without a single issue. I went with the seafood enchilada and was not disappointed. Also, the queso dip is fantastic!

Had lunch & dinner here. A tad bit pricey, but not impossible. Eat outside under huge awning ( with misters to keep things cool ). Their 8 oz. Fillet was spectacular- $36.75 just for that though- to give you an idea. Not even a drink.
