The only thing I will come here for is the happy hour and you have to sit in the bar to get the specials. It's from 3-6 M-F and their specials are approximately $3-7 for different appetizers. My favorites are the flat bread pizza and...More

Not the best but not the worst. The house salad was good but the SouthWestern egg rolls were terrible and they are usually my favorite. Disappointed!

Had to wait 20 mins fo a table, once seated, service was fairly good, only complaint was that our appetiser came out at the same time as the entrees when we had specifically asked for it before. Food was hot and tasty though.

I like coming here for happy hour. They have good options and the chips and salsa is always free refills. If you sit in the bar area, you can order from the regular menu toi.

Service was good and our food came out timely. The 2 for $22 had some nice options on the menu. Tried the 6 oz sirloin which had good flavor and cooked perfect. The spicy chicken was also delicious.

Good food, good service, clean place. All important when out dining. If you get the new fiery chicken strips, plan on them being SUPER hot!!! Usually when dining out, if it says hot, its usually not. BUT this IS HOT!!! Tasty too.

We came here for a quick snack during lunch time. We really like their chips and queso. The menu is okay for a shopping excursion and place to sit down, but I normally wouldn't come here unless you wanted to go during happy hour. We...More

My sirloin was perfect. Much more tender than expected. However, it took forever to get it considering the restaurant wasn't even half-full when we arrived. Also had to ask twice to get my bottled water.

Dropped in for an early lunch while we were in the area. The restaurant was quiet which we thought would mean that our food would come rather quickly. No such luck. We waited, and waited, and waited. The waitstaff kept coming by and offering us...More
