We had dinner last night with family. Charming ambiance and stellar customer service from Karina. The strawberry margaritas were yummy ( too many). I had the chicken fajitas, incredible. Salsa has authentic flavor and chips were great.

Margaritas are my favorite drink. The ones here are fantastic because they are made without that fake lime flavoring. When I am in Southern IL, I will always come for a margarita here. I didn't like the cinnamon that they put in my cheese enchilada,...More
