Love this spot! My friends and I eat here at least twice a month. If you go on a Friday or Saturday night you might have to wait a while to be seated but it is well worth it. I love the shrimp taco dinner and the chicken and shrimp nachos. Margaritas are the best!

We came in and were seated quickly despite a packed house. We got chips and salsa quickly. The Salsa tasted like spicy ketchup and I did not like it very much. I ordered the steak ranchero and the steak was a good size, however, it wasn't cooked on the grill - it appeared to be stewed and lacked the "grill"... More

Don't be put off by the location; at least there is plenty of parking. Price is right and the food is delicious! Particularly fond of the seafood dishes.

Service is great! Endless free chips and Salsa. Tacos are wonderful, Salsa has a slight kick to it and is very flavorful. Fajitas are out of this world. Chicken soup is always called for when one has a cold, very yummy. Can't go wrong with this place!

Love this place. We go approximately once a week. Our kids (all grown) love it too. When they are in town it is where they want to go. The service is great, the staff is very friendly. They make you feel at home. The menu is extensive. We have tried most of the meals and like them all. We go... More
