Stopped in for a quick dinner one evening and we were no disappointed. Neither of us were real hungry, so we ordered a number of appetizers. This was a great decision as they were filling and having the variety was good. Will have to go...More

Some previous negative posts do no justice for this place. The service is wonderful and the food is excellent. Did I mention they make a real margarita no sugary bottle mix. The kitchen is very clean and they are organized. If you are looking for...More
