We dined with a very large group on a Wednesday evening. Most of us agreed that the food was just okay. My wife and I both had soft tacos and both thought the soft shells were really weird. Very cold, thick and doughy. My son...More

Friendly and accommodating staff. Fun atmosphere and decor. Large choice of fillings for tacos, enchiladas etc. Above average quality of food. Very fresh. Great price to food quantity ratio. Points off for close table spacing. Will go back again.
