They have great food, competitive prices and decent service. I love that they have a patio. The guacamole is great as an appetizer!

This is close to home so we visit fairly often. The service is excellent and the food is very good. It's plentiful and generous in portions. Fast too . Great drinks and the sombrero bday serenade is fun.

Very good food. Service is good. One time I got something sub par, but it was still good. I love their chips and salsa. The chips are warm and crisp.

We had a group of 14 people and were only given 3 bowl of chips. Had to ask for a refill of drink. Food was OK but not as good as I'd expected from previous reviews.
