Food was good. Waiter was attentive checking if we needed anything or refills. Bathrooms could have used a little attention. Several items on the menu.

We went here on our first night in town. The strawberry margarita was good, not as strong as some I've had though. We each got a combo, I really liked my enchilada and taco, but it was the sweet little corn cake that topped it...More
