Had the chicken with apples in a pecan sauce. Very tasty. Chips came with two types of salsa -- red and green. Waitress was attentive, informative and friendly. Restaurant decor was nice with bright tablecloths and fun lights.

It's not really Mexican, but kinda. More Central American? Fundido is Funtastic. Fajitas for 2 is seriously enough for 4. Monstrous. Atmospher is fun and excellent (though moving soon to downtown Brevard, so we'll see how that changes). Not "free chips" when you sit, so...More
