Wasn't impressed . Place was clean and the waitress was very friendly. The chips wasn't fresh and the food was very bland

Went for lunch here. Good choice and excellent value for money. Service was efficient and Friendly. Margaritas were great! I have given it 4 stars rather than 5 because it lacked atmosphere but it was lunchtime. Will go back again when i am in Town!
